Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Riser Bars.. show me your grips!

Let's see your combo. I'm leaning toward wrapping mine, but have never seen it in person, or on the web. Inspire me..

I have these grips on my risers:
These are my personal favorite grips; I modified them a little by xacto-ing the innerside protector


and I just have to mention ourys.... the all time classic


I also have:

Champ grips:


Soyo grips: AVOID THESE AT ALL COSTS IF YOU INTEND ON RIDING WITHOUT GLOVES! These will give you some nasty blisters on your hands.


Strong V grips:

If I go with risers I am definitely going with PDW, but I have tried ODI Lock ons and I really like them...even though the allen wrench seems to warp getting them tight.


ODI


PDW

Dude I was totally about to start this thread! Had to search to see the most recent version. It was 2006 hot dog. Not the greatest pic. Salsa Hot pepper grips.

I also like various BMX grips sans flange.

Aaron Ross Qwerty grips:


Animal Edwin Delarosa grips:


Kink Omega grips:


I find BMX grips much more comfortable than Ourys.

ODI makes a 90mm lock on... but yes, they are hard plastic so they slide on then clamp down on both ends.
