Hi guys,

What grips were used on 92 Klein Attitudes?

The Instinct grips were a little later (93/94?) and I can see that they were some foam type grips, but were they a specific brand or just basic bits of foam?

Think you might be right :)

Just had a closer look at the 92 brochure and they have the same shape.

Just need to find some now...

I know I studied that famous photo for hours as a teenager. Should have been doing something else I suppose.
Also they have a specialized ground control in the pic if that was the next question :)

I was pretty much certain on the tyres but not going to go on spec for the tyres though :?

Thank you for confirming that. After looking at the pictures a bit more closely it was quite obvious :oops:
