    Actual large grips?

    I have the red monkey 35mm diameter grips. Love them but they are tore up now. Looking for something similar. 35mm diameter. Hard to find anything like it but more durable. Any help with that?

    Ritchey WCS Truegrip (not the ergo model) foam grips feel quite thick.

    Wolf Tooth Fat Paw. I bought a pair for a hand injury a year and a half ago, split the pair for right side on two bikes, they're holding up great, I've probably got 400 hours on one of them.
    carry clippers! cut something off the trail every time you ride.

    I just got a set of the Ergon fat grips, perfect size and more comfy then ESI chunky IMO.

    forget esi for durability. smack them once with anything, they'll peel apart.

    good, until nicked... then junk.

    Those look fantastic. I hadn't heard of them before.

    Come on, this is no good without pics of them and showing your large mitts wrapped around them compared to something "normal" Right now using the ODI Orry grips at 33mm and they're the biggest and most comfy, used to use Ergon with the wings, but got to riding too steep and technical and couldn't quite get the grip I needed, tried the GE1s & GA2s, but too thin.

    I use cheap foam grips. You can buy them on eBay and cut them to the length you want. If they get ripped, tape them up. You get cloth tape for wrapping car wiring looms.

    Measure 33mm on the inside and 35mm at the outside.

    I tried the wolftooth Fatpaw. Super comfy but slightly too big for my hands.

    Thanks man, look nice. So is the bar end plug just the Ergon Yin & Yang logo bit or is it part of the black that surrounds that as well? That was one of the major weak areas of those and the other inside clamp grips from Ergon, one decent fall onto the end of your bar and you broke the hard plastic inside piece that kept everything together.

    Do you mind measuring how long the trip part is (excluding clamp)?
