    If I find a lock -on that feels as good as my Oury's which I wire on and have never had slip I'll gladly switch. And yes Ive tried the Oury lock-on's there not as plush

    Idea! cons with lock on grips

    [QUOTE=office;11581925]Clamp-ons are fine - there are no cons.


    actually there are cons with lock-ons,
    i avoid lock-on grips for these reasons.

    1. they are heavier lol
    2. they have painful metal parts that can hit knee.
    3. i like to pull off my grips time to time its part of cycling.
    4. they cost more to make therefore cost more.
    5. and most importantly they have a strange feel to them, they are hard and have just a thin layer of rubber because they have a plastic sleeve taking up valuable absorption space, hypothetically the only way round this is to have handlebars that actually get thinner on the grip part of the bar, thereby allowing the grip to be lock on and still get a good thickness of rubber, without making the grip to thick overall. .....simples.
