    Thicker grips?

    What grips are out there for larger hands? I currently use Lizard Skins Peaty Lock-ons, but need something comparable, but larger in diameter. Any suggestions?

    Several of guys on my local forum seem to like the Ergons alot. And now I see this here too.

    I have been fighting the urge to run them on my new SS but I am slowly being changing my mind. My hands do tend to get a little numb on longer rides.

    Had been thinking kinda old school I guess...ODI Ruffian lock-ons.

    I run the ergons on my hard tail and the Oury's on my SS. I am thinking that I will be switching to Oury's on both of my rides. They feel great to me

    Second vote for ESI Chunky. The ergons put my hands to sleep after 10 miles no matter how I adjusted them...

    I think WTB makes some big grips. I saw them somewhere online recently, have been meaning to try some. I like those old Pedro's Blackwalls (I think that's what they are) but don't know if they are still available. They last a really long time.
    29ers are just a fad, like disc brakes, suspension, indexed shifting and mountain bikes.

    I run full rigid. These grips alone absorb an incredible amount of vibration and are mad comfortable both on extended climbs, and just cruising through rock bed. The fact that you can get a good grip with multiple hand positions is just the icing.
