Grips

Postby s1mon » Sat Nov 17, 2012 17:49 pm

Hi,

I like the Superstar Supagrippers, they seem to be softer than most, but don't expect them to last ages! http://superstar.tibolts.co.uk/index.php?cPath=60

And cheap. You can just get cartridge replacements too.

I like uberbike grips. Basically the same as superstar grips but...

1p cheaper.

Spend the extra and get the job done properly. ODI make the Troy Lee lock-ons which are superb and they also make the Han Solo for SDG, which are also very, very good.

You on drugs? - Uberbike £10 a set, Superstar £8 for the skinny ones, £9 for the fat ones. All less 1p because I can't be arsed to type .99 each time.

Nope. The equivalent grips on Ss are £10 to uberbike's 9.99. Yes SA have cheaper grips, but that's not the ones I'm talking about.

More importantly, do Uberbike send Haribo?

good grips and comfy, but are thicker than the norm, so not suitable for everyone
