    Portland Design Grips - More shiny bits

    Anybody running these grips. They look really cool but not sure how functional they would be.

    I fail to see the design advantage thereof.

    I saw those were on sale. While they look cool, they do so in a hardcore solid kind of way, like something you'd run on a park/DH/Freeride bike, not a ride all day kind of rig.

    I like the ESI Racer's Edge personally. Light and foamy.

    Obviously the design advantage is that they are 29er specific. Why else would they be posted in the 29er forum

    These grips are no different than most of the custom frame builders in Portland, plenty of fashion but little purpose.

    its basically just less grip area. Metal gets cold and uncomfortable.
