    Grips for kids' bikes

    What are some decent grips for replacing my 2 boys' bikes? I picked up a used 16" Hotrock and plan on getting a used 20" Hotrock for my 2 boys, but usually all the grips and endcaps are worn or missing. I can only find adult ones that seem really long as compared to the grips that come with the bike.

    Any help is appreciated....I'll start of with that and then see what the next step in modding would be.

    Depending on how big your kids' hands are, you can wrap the ends of the bars with padded road tape too. Great for small hands!

    BMX specific grips are sometimes shorter than MTB. You could also look for shorter grips made to go with grip-shifters.

    You can cut grips to whatever length you want with a pair of scissors.

    The Specialized grip I used to buy for him doesn't seem to be available any more.
    I like turtles
