I began looking for a new pair of handlebar grips because the stock grips that came with my 26" ladies Clairmont cruiser were downright painful due to their spiky texture. My hands literally had indentations from the spiked rubbery plastic and I didn't grip them unnecessarily hard either. In addition, my wrist and should ached horribly. I quickly discovered that bikes with twist shifters had very limited choices when it comes to new grips - either buy two pair with different sizes or cut one down to fit and this was not an option in my opinion. Sunlite deserves praise just for recognizing the needs of people who have twist shifter bikes.

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.

Great little grip. I replaced OEM grips on a "box store" Mountain bike with these. Wow, what a huge improvement. Nice size, nice material and design. Very easy to install just using a little hair gel. My only advise on these is too make sure you measure your old grips before ordering. These are 90mm and work specifically with Twist Shifter set-ups. I actually sold the bike that I installed these on and the first thing the new owner commented on was how he like the grips. : I'll be sure to spec these in the future. Oh, great price as well.

These fit perfectly on my twist shifter handlebars and they have a nice ergonomic shape. But they're not soft AT ALL, so my hands still get numb after an hour or so. I wanted to like them, and I'm still trying to get used to them, but I think it's time to start looking at gel grips. Oh, well.

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.

These grips are pretty decent. I have had none of the problems that I have had with previous grips. Some have a gummy residue - or acquire one from the oils on your palms. Not these: They remain dry and easy to clean with a texture that will not let you lose your grip. And of course they absorb some shock and provide a comfortable ledge for your palms as any set of ergo grips should. Their shape is fairly satisfying in your hands - even when you are steering very casually, you still feel like you have total control of your bike. Although your hands kind of *want* to grip them, so they encourage you to safely hold on with both hands. I find that this heightened feeling of control makes you more focused and enjoy the ride more. And the fact that the twist-shift grip does not need to be cut down to size gives it a more professional appearance. Of course, there are better, more expensive grips out there. (Ergon are the top of the line in my opinion and ten times better.) But if you do not want to invest in those, these have an excellent cost:benefit ratio.

Great grips for twist shifter levers and you can't beat the price. A trick that a bike mechanic taught me. Using a little hairspray works great as a lubricant and as a glue. Don't use soap or oil as they can cause it to slip or twist while riding.

After hand issues made me hate my handlebars, I changed from the stock upright bars to Velo Orange butterfly bars on my Trek 7000, which has GripShifters.

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!!
