    extreme foam grip website?

    I bought some really nice foam grips a few weeks ago and want another set. I cannot find the website now. I think the company is called extreme engineering?? anyone know what I am talking about and have a link to their website? I have searched the forums here and not come up with anything.

    Sort of off topic but what is the best way to install foam grips? Hairspray or another lubricant?

    the website listed has the install instructions, they say only water or windex. I did windex and one of my grips stuck and the other did not.

    alcohol, works very well because it evaporates quickly. The grips are great, i also bought a whole bunch after the first pair and the thin version is as confortable as the thick one. A nice feature is that you can stretch them or push them in to adjust thikness, weights are at

    Thank you. I just used alcohol and it worked great. I was using Scott grips though not the ones above. I may try them out next time.

    And the alcohol probably weighs less than windex. LOL
