Foam grips=no more numb fingers






Installed these foam grips that slip over existing grips today then went for a 45 mile ride since it was 54 degrees....For probably the very first time ever, My fingers did not get numb one single time...not once.
I always have to shake one hand or the other out every once in awhile because of tingling and numbness..but not today..well worth $10.

This is important to me because fingers going numb occasionally was one of the smaller but most annoying problems I had with riding this bike..I am so relieved I have found a cure that works for me and just wanted to share.

How did the foam help your fingers in the cold? Do you ride with gloves?

Yes, these are very effective, especially on long rides. An added bonus is that over time they will compress somewhat over time between your thumb and index finger, making them even more comfortable, apart from almost eliminating the handlebar vibes.

Just wondering how these are holding up over time/weather. Thinking about getting some myself, however I'm also concerned about the increase in diameter (I typically wear a size small glove).

I am the Stig's father's brother's cousin's nephew's former roommate.

They hold up just fine, I've had a 60c pair last for a year now.

However, it does increase the effective yawn of the levers, which may be of importance to you if your hand size is small, esp in stop go traffic when there is a lot of brake/clutch usage. You might consider adjustable levers (I used a hammer as I prefer minimal yawn in my lever anyways, and my brake lever has much less travel, having a near non expanding steel coiled teflon line).
