    Good job! Enduro happy grip

    Just got back from the QBP Frostbike dealer show. Came across a product that they will be carrying for 2005. It's the Ergon grip. It's looks way funny, but just you wait till you get it in your hand. The rep said that they a ton of people demo-ing these grips at Trans-Alps last year and had high praise. They are available in a normal grip and a bar-end version. I hope to get a couple sets of these and give them some thrash'n to see how they are. I still can't get over how well they fit the hand....like butta! Sorry, no company website for them, but if you do a search thru google there are a few mail order shops stocking them.

    I have seen those and the bar end version (looks like a cane handle). Sort of like a grip that was very popular around here in the late '80s-early '90s. They support the heel of your palm to keep your wrist at the proper angle.

    I picked up a pair at the shop (with the bar-end) and they are heavier than I'd hoped for. I still plan on giving them a whirl.

    If they were within reason, I'd give em a go just to see what they are like.

    I think the best thing is good old Foam grips. Nothing seems to beat them for comfort, over short or really long rides. Oury's in contrast absolutely kill my hands.

    The pair with the bar-end option is a lot heavier. Plus they don't seem to fit all that well. The regular pair is about the weight of a pair of lock-on grips...maybe a bit lighter.

    Those are cool and I'd like to see some - like feel them. FYI - Bontrager has something similar out for quite a while, but not exactly the same it appears- check them out (http://www.bontrager.com/Mountain/Co...Grips/7106.php)

    I've found that Ourys are better for my hands. After a 24 I usually can't feel the tips of my ring finger or my pinky for a few weeks. With the Ouras I can feel them in less than a week. This year I'm trying a combo of Ourys and H- bars- with that many hand choices and the squishy ourys I hope to have signifigantly less carpal tunnel issues post race.
