    Push ons are still thinner. A little bit goes a long way for comfort. Lock ons do offer that convenience but the push ons are so cheap that i can just throw another one or 2 on if for some reason i have to pull a lever or shifter. The push ons are still cheaper but if for some reason i have to do multiple swaps and tgey end up more than lock ons its still a small price to pay. Besides, ive come to the conclusion that the thinnest possible is a necessity. Anyone has a thinner grippy push on thats thinner thsn the renthals im all ears
    Worth a try if you think they may work for you. If not you still have the lock ons. I used tge renthat grip glue, $7 a tube will do multiple pairs. I put them on both bikes and still lots left but not sure on shrlf life. Every order i throw in grips, brake pads , maybe a chsin etc

    you mean about grips or just in general ?

    maybe you wana take them off the bar and rap on them to dislodge bubbles ?

    fucking with the seat dropper or whatever ?

    whatever reason you might want to take a grip off

    I guess I'm just used to everything being removable from the bar without removing the grips... I guess if I needed to remove grips with any regularity, lock-ons might be handy.

    I always thought they were kind of a solution looking for a problem, though.

    just don' t use hairspray cuz every time I rode them in the rain the grips would slip on the bar even 20 yrs later

    plain alcohol or compressed air if you got a compressor

Probably impossible to find those though

    I've never had arm pump, which I put down to climbing. The tennis elbow seemed to come after hitting a basket of balls at the range for the 1st time in 4 years. I've changed grips lately that are thicker I'm thinking that may have aggravated it

    Possible. I was piggybacking off xxxers reply to you but a friend just had surgery to his tennis elbow and they operated on the nerve at the wrist

    That ^^ is possibly not tennis elbow?

    Old goat to the courtesy phone

    you either get tennis elbow which is pain on the outside of the elbow between elbow & wrist closer to elbow

    or golfers elbow which is pain on the inside of elbow as I understand but have never experienced/ don't know much about

    Get a Wave tool and work out the problem on your tendon. Climbers get tennis elbow a lot and this thing works like a charm.

    Funny. I use(d) hairspray quite a bit with non lock ons and never had them slip... Mostly running lock ons now.

    I don't know what brand of hairspray but my ODI mushroom grips would start to slip as things got wet and stop slipping as things dried out

    ERGO I suggest hairspray is a bad idea, in any case its the alcohol that slides them on the bar so i use alcohol, really the best way is to shoot compressed air into the grip as you slide them on

    even the hair band BonJovi are sayin " slippery when wet " the band was hanging out at #5 Orange street in Vangroovy when they recorded that ^^ album, the stripper stage has or had a shower

    How thin are you looking for? I just got done stretching an old road tube onto my nephew's bars to shim his grips out a little...guess you could just grab some XS non-lubricated next time you're at the gas station?

    Anyone run ODI's a little bit past the end of the bars to increase effective bar length? With the supply shitshow we've got an old pair of those making longer bars for a minute on a spare bike and I'm a little curious how long that might be ok or if it needs to be swapped out ASAP.
