Have used ODI Intense and Kona LOG's on my fully setups. Normal grips otherwise, except the single speed where I cut the grip ends off and use lock on/in bar ends.

the only downside is the weight, ritchey should do some foam lock ons!

I'm using Oury's on all my bikes, use the normal onces when I'm around my place cause they're more comfy. Prefer the lock-ons on longer trips though. voted for lock ons but just bought ten normal pairs on the bay lately :oops:

Tried them but found them too bulky for my small hands, eventually causing cramps on longer rides.
Just fitted Panaracer Magics on my modern Yeti, they were the thinnest and probably the lightest grips BITD and I am much more comfortable now.

Top tip. Use Automotive trim adheasive to fit your grips, they slide on a treat and will not budge after 10 mins and will never come off even in the wettest weather. To remove them, just roll them back like a sock- no scratches on your bars this way.
