    New grips on carbon fiber bars.

    Are there any special considerations in putting new grips on a carbon fiber bar. I'm intertested in the Ergon MR1's, primarily becuase I want a bigger grip (big paws). My bike, Trek FuelEX8, has a Bontrager Race X Lite Carbon bar. Specialized has a similar grip, but it says "not for use on carbon fiber bars". Ergon doesn't say this, but it has me wondering if I need to make any special considerations for a cf bar.

    You might want to cross post this to the save some weight post. I dont belive their is any reason you could'nt use any grip you want on CF bars. I have mounted grips on them beffor with no problems.
