    Ok, these kids bicycle grips have to be a joke.

    They obviously didn't think this design out very thoroughly.....and yes, I did say KIDS grips.

    I don't know.
    However, whoever made those had to know. In fact they had to have gone down a whole list of people before and after production that couldn't help to snicker every time they saw them.

    Wonder if there's a shipping option for delivery in a plain, brown wrapper?

    It is actually a great design. Even have a small flange on the inner edge too. ...cause you do not want it to slip ...in.

    It was clearly designed by an American company, 9cm is about the right length for you guys right?

    To be honest I'm surprised the one in the top right isn't much longer.


    Can I say that sort of thing here?

    Sorry we measure in standard units here, not metric.

    Probably an Australian company.

    And on an unrelated note, isn't it ironic that you call them "standard units" when only you use them ?

    Well actually it is called the American Standard but it is often shortened to just standard.
    It does seem to change the meaning a bit though. lol

    Do you think the land of oversized cars is compensating for something? I drive a full sized pick up for the...umm...bike carrying capacity.

    ah what the heck, in for a penny in for a pound.

    The one in the middle of the bottom row must be for Asian bikes

    And no, we are Austral-asians

    I think they are ribbed to give better grip when wet.

    In all honesty, it may not be a bad idea. Since kids have a tendency to throw a bike down, the end of the bar punches through the grips. This creates a real hazard. Now with a big goofy "shock" on the end of the grip, it might be able to withstand the wrath of a kid. Also, if you were ever to land on the end of the bar, the increased surface area would do less damage.
