Fine – Comfortable Sponge Bicycle Handle Bar Grips (Pair/Assorted Color) Reviews

posted by Criggie on 07/31/2011 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Works fine - I bought three and got red, yellow and blue. One pair got used on the kid's scooter and that was perfect. Scooter has elastic through the handlebar so you don't lose the ends when its collapsed down. The end-caps even have a small hole for the elastic to go through and get knotted.
Cons:
The sponge rubber foam is not particularly heavy or dense, so it will tear easily enough. There is nothing to stop the grips from sliding around the handlebars given a good twist. So if you want them to stay stuck, a dab of glue underneath might help a lot.
Other:
The finger indents aren't really lined up with anything. I wish I'd got a green one for my bike though.
Bottomline:
Cheap, good enough. If your bike is worth thousands, probably not for you. Mine's a $100 junker and will do nicely.
