I have an oldschool GT RTS that's treated me well for the past 15+ years. It has SRAM SRT600 grip shifters on it, and the rubber grip portion of the front shifter has deteriorated and fell apart several years back. The shifter still works well...the plastic barrel is still intact. But it hurts my fingers/hands sometimes when shifting into a lower gear.
Any tips on what to use to cover the barrel? I thought about using road bike grip tape, but I imagine it would come loose over time and spin over the barrel. Maybe use Gorilla Glue to stick the tape onto the barrel?
On a side note, the RTS has been absolutely bullet proof for hundreds/thousands of miles. I just replaced the Quadra 10 fork (yes, original shitty fork) with a Tora SL and original cantilever brakes with Avid SL 7s, and I'm looking forward to riding another season on the old workhorse.
