Thick grips.
« on: December 10, 2015, 03:29:19 PM »
Anyone making thick grips these days?

I was reading that thread about the 1" diameter bar and got me nostalgic for the Nate Hanson grip.

A thread after my own heart

I love the old A Ross grips when they are new. I had 2 levers so they don't stretch and tear super quick like they do to other people, but they do wear fast. I got a whole box of the fucking things when I heard they weren't being made anymore

I gave those a go when they first came out, weren't they pretty average sized? I don't remember them being particularly thick.

As I mentioned in the other thread I used to ride 1" bars too and loved it. I ranted to my friend about noone making them anymore and he cracked "Why dont you just put something underneath your current grips, like tape?"

I guess bar tape could be an option, if you can make it even. Shall try it sometime.

Martinez and Nathan grips were both pretty thick.
If you can find Fit Inmans, those are thicker also.

The shovelhands are the good word. My only gripe is that the outside edge of the grips taper off very slightly. Maybe only for a single CM or something. But that's a spot where I park my hands pretty often so it's worth noting.

Those Cult AK grips are actually a little bit thicker than the vans and share a similar level of comfort, too.
This is my signature.

BSD Forever grips are thick and don't crush down to a smaller diameter when riding.

Decent grip pattern too.
