does anyone have any onza porcipaw grips kicking around spare, or failing that the later ones they made...think they were called "uleses" or something..

I use Ules currently on my orange...nice but not quite as nice as my old porcipaws on the marin.

I heard rumours (on here somewhere) that they may be reproducing the porcipaws some time soon.

I posted that because I spotted them earlier when looking for something else.

They are not a grip I ever got on with. Porkypaws were better but so stupid soft you needed new ones monthly (I had the purple ones which flaked away in your hands).

I use ODI Yeti's on nearly all my bikes - but you need good gloves.

I used the porcipaws for ages and your right, they did flake off in your hands.

I use the ules on my mongoose and have had them on there for years now, comfy and bloody sticky too!!

Will look nice on my new rebuild too....:D
