    Ergo grips

    I just bought a pair for my self and put them on today. So far they seem to be great. I was curious if anyone else uses them and what they think of their performance on trails such as National.

    Here's to no more numb and painful hands after only 10 miles of riding.

    i switch my grips on a per trail basis and found the ergo grips work best for me on desert classic.
    for national i run odi ruffians (black of course, the other colors don't work as well on that trail).
    mormon i run odi tld's (white, duh) & geronimo i go sunline thins (again white, i won't even think about black grips on geronimo).

    Lol so when you mix it up and ride all those trails in a day you have a psychedelic flashback to the 70's grip?

    are grips the things you put on your bars? If so, I like sticky ones....not too thick, not too thin.

    I really like the low-profile small ergon grips and even have them on my DH bike. But it seems that those platter size ones would be horrible on anything where you actually change body positions from anything besides sitting. A problem with all Ergons is that they only lock on one side. Damage that side in a fall and you have no grips... been there, done that.

    Had similar experience with the Ergo on downhill/tech stuff. Felt like my hands might slip forward off the grips for a couple rides. I tilted them back a couple degrees and that really helped.

    Rode last week on a borrowed Focus that had ergo grips. It was a 100mm travel bike with narrower bars and the grips worked fine on the single track technical trails we were riding in an Israel forest. First for me with both the grips and riding in a foreign country.
