Hi have some Gusset B*stard grips at the moment however they spin on the bars AND forever move down the bars during riding (tried spray adhesive/hair spray the lot :D . This is really annoying as i ride with my hands on the very edge of the bar and end up with dead pinkys LMAO!

I'm looking for some lock on grips to counter the spinning/moving BUT if possible only locking on the inner part (the Gusset grips had a plastic bar end wedge/clamp thing on the outer part of the grip and i had to remove this as it to was giving me dead hands :roll:).

Prefer black (NO white!)....... Maybe with red locking clamps (oh god the red thing has started LMAO! :lol:). And something reasonably hard wearing.

Thanks.

    Superstars - not hard wearing, but cheap.
    And sounds like your bars are too short.

    Pro and specialized grips only use one clamp and I guess you could put that either inside or outside.

    Bontrager X-Lite grips are decent. You have to be careful with the bolts but I've found them to be hard wearing and comfortable and they come in black with a red lock ring. There are a few others as well like the Pro Atherton grips but I have no experience of them.

    Doesn't sound to me like bars are too short though, some people just grip the bars on the edge, I do, it puts annoying holes in my gloves but it's how I prefer my hands to sit.
  • Hmmm never thought about the bars. Think they are 711mm. These ones:

    Just a bit of a habit riding with the ball of my hand on the end of the bars. However would make sense if the were wider. *goes off to look at wider bars.

    Thanks.
