Thread: Source for bike grip rubber?

    Source for bike grip rubber?

    I know it's probably a long shot but does anybody know of a source for just the rubber?

    The compant that used to make them is out of business. Myself and Dave at AGD already went trough this a whle back. That is why AGD is using Hypalon foam now. That is all we can get.

    What do you guys think about these? Obviously the would need to be cut down but I think they would work.

    I know it doesn't help but there were a ton of AGD bike grips for sale on ebay not to long ago. I dont think a bunch of them sold. Unfortunately the person who listed them never relisted them.

    i have one of those. got it from palmer's pursuit shop when they were on sale for 2.50 a grip. do we know the outside diameter of the agd bike grip tube? would any actual bike grip work? there are tons of 'em out there that would work just as well, if not better, than the stock agd rubber. i like the esi silicone grips myself; have them on my mountain bike and work well. they come in several different colors as well. the racers edge is a good diameter if you have smaller hands.

    would one of the generic regulator grips (like exalt) work?


    Or maybe sweet talk Luke into making a mold... Seems like an item such as this might make a good addition to the lukescustoms.com website...

    If I could recommend a source for grips that isn't going anywhere: ODI's Lock-On grips. They're the standard for MTB grips now, though there are imitators. They are rubber with two aluminum clamps, one for each end, that prevent them from spinning or slipping at all. Normal grips are wide enough for a whole hand, but most GTGs are not. If you use a GripShift, you need a shorter grip so you've got the same total area. A plain cylinder 80mm long and 22.2mm in diameter would be perfectly sized for shorty lock-ons.
