Re: What grips to use with bar ends?

Think I'll go for the pre-cut. Not yet though, going to keep with my bar tape for now. I've just done a terrible job of it :oops:

What grips to use with bar ends?

I have bar ends on my hybrid/tourer and use bar tape. However, I have yet to come across bar grips to use with extenders. Does everyone just use tape with them, do you cut off the ends of standard grips or are you somehow meant to get your extenders over the grips.

:oops:

Re: Has anybody here personally repair his/her bike?

I'm learning new stuff as I go with the help of this forum. I'd definitely let people touch, at least my LBS and certainly Brucey or Mick. I'd have been stuck 10 times over without some of the members of this forum. I hadn't even re-greased bearings until 2 months ago! :oops:

Re: Searching forums

I agree that changing to allow searching for 3 letter words is not going to happen, but it does seem a little ironic that 3 chars + a wild card is accepted, and this has to be way more resource hungry. And as for a wild card either side of 3 letters - well......... *the* finds 12146 matches in well...
