Oury made some of the finest grips back in the day. To celebrate the release of the Oury 2009 range the UK importers Descent-Gear.com have given retrobike a pair of grips to give to the lucky winner of the November 2008 BoTM contest.

So, over to the importer for a rundown of the new range

Oury Grips have been around since year dot as you can see by their still popular 80′s retro grip designs. New for 2009 are these new colour ways for an ever expanding rider base.

July 1st, 2008

June 21st-22nd saw retrobike make their annual pilgrimage to Eastnor Park to take part in Mountain Mayhem. With over 25 riders and various hangers on it was an excellent turnout. Despite the British weather a great weekend was had by all, due in no small part to the excellent organisation of the event.
