I have got pull off handle bar grips on my MTB, but wondering if lock on grips would work instead?
yeh they are knackered...hense the reason i said, cause mine keep slipping, so i thought about getting lock onThey would, but imo it's not really an upgrade or worth doing at all, unless your current grips are knackered (or you're desperate for colour coordinated lock rings ).
Lock-ons are pretty essential if you're intent on progressing your mountain bike riding as much as you imply.I have got pull off handle bar grips on my MTB, but wondering if lock on grips would work instead?
This is correct, I had some superstar components ones on my MTB, they're an essential upgrade to any MTB used in anger off road imo.Lock-ons are pretty essential if you're intent on progressing your mountain bike riding as much as you imply.
I use Pilgrips (Sam Pilgrim's signature grip) or Deathgrips (Brendog's sig grip) on my MTB's and they are 100% comfy & reliable. If they are good enough for those two's riding then they are good enough for 99.9% of the rest of us.
Not if your seriously in to MTB'ing, there is a real danger that should your grips move, even slightly, your having an off, it's that simple, it's the last thing you want when negotiating a drop off, or a twisty very steep downhill section, that you need your bum hovering over the back wheel to get down safely, there is a lot of force on the grips during those situations.Interested so many here find lock-on grips to be essential - I always thought this was a solution to a problem that doesn't exist!
Must confess to having bought a pair with colour co-ordinated lock rings for one of my bikes though
