    I used regular non-lockon Ourys for years and they never got loose and turned on me. It's all about making things silicon chip room clean before you install them. I use a small dab of 91% isopropyl Alcohol and air pressure to help slip them on. Works perfectly every time.

    Got it...all good reasons can't argue with that.

    Super 77 is supposed to make them stick really well - off course you have cut them off to change a break lever!

    Pretty much my finger dipped in isopropyl alcohol, and wipe the bar with a clean rag and isopropyl alcohol. It's important to use 91% or greater. The 70% stuff contains some other stuff that leaves a film. Let it mostly air dry before installation.

    Okay, I was exaggerating about the 'clean room' clean.

    Super77 is very much like rubber cement. I never had good luck using it, then my graphic designer wife (who actually used to do photo-ready style paste up... pre-computer graphic design) told me that stuff never really dries, and no wonder it doesn't work well. I say, stay far away for this application.

    The ESI's stick every time with Windex, are easy to put on and take off. I've have bad luck with getting rubber grips to stick.

    I changed (for the better) from ODI Lock-on's to Oury Lock-ons. Love em ! Now if I just had a lifetime supply of end caps.

    Really liking my Oury Lockons. So much that I put a pair of Oury slip ons on my secondary bike... will probably test it out this coming weekend.

    I am loving my race face lock on grips, they are larger diameter then most slip ons and its helped a lot with numbness and staying comfortable. Had them on for about 75 miles or so now.

    Ran with Lizard North Shores on my last bike. Decided to go with Odi Rogue's on my new bike after the vibrations with my Bontrager Race Lite Grips drove my hands insane even with the carbon bars. Only been a week and I haven't looked back.

    Re: Get a Grip! (Handlebar Grips Only Thread)




    I've used ODI Rogues for a long time, but I tend to prefer the thinner grips, like these Peaty's I've recently picked up.

    I am using Lizard Skins Northshore Lock-on 33mm grips but was thinking about trying the DSPs. Would be interested how they are.

    The Northshores are alot thicker and with the extra padding will help you out. Those thinner lizard skin grips are going to be quite different.

    Get a Grip! (Handlebar Grips Only Thread)

    I just ordered a set of the Lizard Skin Peaty grips. They're not cheap, I sure hope I like them.

    The Northshore are 33 mm diameter. The thicker DSP are 32.3 mm. Negligible difference. I have largish hands and like gloves without much padding so thicker grips work better for me so far. But I'm a beginner at mtn biking so that could still change as I get more experienced and faster.

    End caps on Oury non-lock-ons....

    The big issue I've always had with original Ourys was the bar cutting through the end of the grip if/when the end of the bar took a hit. Now with carbon bars I really don't like that happening.

    Putting an end cap on the bar, under the grip works, but often the outer diameter of the cap is slightly larger than the grip and this creates a tiny pocket at the end the grip that allows some annoying rotation.

    I've cut the ends off and put the larger, internally mounted, end caps that cover the end of the grip and that works well. But it ruins the feel a bit.

    Any ideas?

    I thought about gluing a tougher piece of rubber to the outside of the rubber end piece. Or maybe putting a plug into the end of the bar and cutting it flush with the bar.

    My hands prefer the mildly barrel-shaped (convex) cork grips from Dimension, but I dislike having to glue and remove these from handlebars...it would be cool if ODI or someone else combined this classic corker with the simplicity of bolt-ons.
