  • I think you can buy lock ons designed specifically for grip shift, i guess they're just shorter than standard ones. But i don't see why you couldn't use normal ones as long as you have enough space on your bars.

    so I have big hands and lok-ons are slightly different size

    standard is around 130mm - 135mm

    most lok-on are a total of 135mm, so the grip is really 115mm or so (10mm each side for coller)

    best and biggest I have seen are

    they are bmx grips, so the rubber is a bit soft, and if you have gear shifters they can get in the way........

    It varies, but you'd need to find single lockring grips or the inner lockring would shred your hands.

    I use these:-

    i got them from CRC but it appears they don't do them now.
    A trawl through the interweb my find a UK source.
    I cut off the lugs on the inside so only use the outer lockring as cooldad suggests. Works fine.

    More expensive than when I got them. If you decide to get them I can let you have my spare set of lockons?
