Follow ups for ESI Grips
I took my son to Wairakei MTB park this morning and tried my new grips. ...Not bad. Not bad at all. The steering feels a bit quicker, easier to control on sharp switch backs, I THINK.
Why do I feel like that?
I forgot I had canecreek ergon bar ends before, now I have an extra 2cm on each side of the handlebar. That's why.
The grips are very nice though. Right thickness, just enough to absorb the incoming shocks. Remember, I have bouncy tyres but no shocks!!
I wouldn't mind to get another pair of these, they are highly recommended.
(There are 2 types of ESI grips available in NZ, the one I'm using is called racer's edge, the other one is chunky.)
