Hi

Can anyone recommend some large diameter, lock on grips. I have rather large hands and I am finding they are going numb with my current ones.

Thanks

Ade

Which seem to be a Mk 2 version?

I prefer the ones I have 8)

Sunlines are fat & comfy... but they may pinch your bars a little if you overtighten them :oops:

I use a pair of these Blackspire Epic grips and they are bloody good - best I've ever used I reckon.
