These grips were shipped quickly and were in perfect condition but installation instructions were basically non-existent. I have never had ergonomic grips before and didn't have a clue how they were supposed to be positioned. Thankfully, a quick internet search remedied that issue. I have included pictures to demonstrate the correct positioning and they do work very well.
I have had carpal tunnel in my wrists for some years now. Then, during this last year I had surgery for a left rotator cuff injury that was so severe that my shoulder froze. Anyway, after a bike ride, my hands, wrist, and shoulder were all inflamed and aching horribly. These grips did relieve this problem and they have a wonderful feel to the hand. Correctly positioned, these grips will serve you well!
As for removing old grips, I discovered in my internet search that a long flat tipped screw driver sprayed with hair spray (explained below) works great. Insert the wet screw driver between the old grip and the handlebar and then run it around the handlebar breaking the seal. The combination of the wetness and the air allows the grip to slide right off.Read more ›
Also note that if you only have a twist shifter on one side, there is a set with two different sized grips: Sunlite Ergo Ridge Grips - 130/90mm Pair, Black. I wish I had known about that before I bought these.
In order to use the Ergo grips (with the GripShifters) on the open ends of butterfly bars, I needed to cram them on backwards, through a hole I cut in the closed end. They work perfectly.
I taped the bar first with Salsa cork/gel tape, finishing with a goodly wrap of electrical tape. Then I took scissors to my brand-new Sunlite Ergo grips, and cut a rough hole in the closed ends of each grip. Using a bit of soapy water on the inside, I worked them cut-end-side-first onto the bar end, then over the end of the tape. Then I mounted my Gripshifters and brakes. Wowee!! Comfortable bars.
I think it would be a lot harder to pull this trick with Ergon grips; they are more rigid. The Sunlite grips seem robust, but the ends were flexible enough to get scissor-points into without much difficulty. I look forward to much comfier riding!!

Stays in place, very nice pattern which looks like a carbon fiber weave. Just enough Palm space before it would become bulky.Published 5 days ago by Mike

I love these grips. Much better than more expensive ergo grips. I like that they don't lock on so if my hands get a little numb I can adjust while riding. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Ken S. Sato
