PLAIN AND SIMPLE - DO THE JOB

Bought these to replace the aged, torn rubber grips on a second-hand Giant Rock I bought as back-up to my Giant Roam bought from Tredz - so I obviously didn't want to spend much cash! They fit well, very plain - simply cover the bars - no shaping - but they do the job. The foam feel may not be to everyone's liking - very different from rubber which personally I prefer. But I should mention the problems encountered fitting them. There are no instructions because it ought to be a simple matter - but it's not! A helpful reviewer stated that he'd used soap - and frankly there's no way you would get them on without it. So I coated the bars with liquid hand soap (Carex or similar) and after 20 minutes was getting nowhere - about a quarter of the way up ONE bar. Then I had a Homer 'Doh!' moment. I coated my forefinger in liquid soap and thrust it into the holes at both ends of the grip itself (if you'll excuse the expression). Wiggled it around the interior of the grip (it's getting worse), then the grip slid on easily (what am I saying?). Of course you're left with extremely soapy grips so I soaked a large clean rag in cold water, wrapped it round the grips and used it to squeeze out the excess soap then left it all to dry. Forgive the Fifty Shades type review. Might not get past the censors - but if it does it may save a few buyers a lot of time.

Good Value Grips.

I bought these together with some bar-ends. They are comfortable and went on easily after running some water through them. A big plus was that I didn't have to cut them to fit on the bar-ends, being foam, they simply "squash up" and make room for them. Cheap, too.

Grips & Bar Tape Guide

What are grips and bar tape?

Grips and bar tape form the padding you rest your hands on when you cycle.

Who needs grips and bar tape?

Grips and bar tape don’t last forever. They’re a bike consumable that you will need to replace when it gets too worn.

What are the choices?

If your bike has flat handlebars, you need grips, if you ride drop bars you need bar tape. Beyond this, there’s a bewildering array of materials, textures and colours to choose from, all promoting different comfort and performance properties.

What should I buy with them?

Grips are only one half of the cycling hand comfort equation. Pamper your palms properly and add a decent pair of cycling gloves as well.

Anything else?

Grips and bar tape aren’t just about comfort – there are so many fantastic colours and designs to choose from, it’s a great way to add a splash of your personality to your bike.
