Unless you ride no handed everywhere, your paws spend a considerable amount of time touching the grips. The Portland Design Works Whiskey Grips treat those hands to not only an ergonomic, supportive shape, but supple leather as well. That full-grain leather is sourced from Italy and it's conditioned with natural oils to soften and give it the rich brown or black finish. The grips feature alloy lock-on rings to prevent twisting when riding.
I have an Electra Towne. I hate writing something bad about these because I really like the grips, but whoever designed those end caps should be beat with a rubber hose. You can tighten them all the way and they will still fall right off. Frustrating for all the money you have to spend on these. I finally tried wrapping Teflon tape around the inside plastic piece the end cap is suppose to hold on to (it took ten wraps). And it kind of works. It will still come right off in my hand if my palm touches it. Frustrating. P.S. I really don't want someone beat with a rubber hose. If they could just give me end caps that stay on I would love these.
great product but be careful with packaging because my pair was sent USPS in a yellow envelope and were stepped on and damaged. I did reorder. these are super nice grips with quality billet aluminum ends. high recommend if you want an ergo grip that isn't rubber. suggested for must urban, city and hybrid bikes, doubt these are good for hard core mountain biking
I still use these because I paid for them and need grips for my bike BUT they're poorly designed. The metal caps at the end of the grips are always popping off. Just last night I had to dig through the bushes to find the metal end cap because it popped off for the nth time. No matter how much I tighten the screw, they just don't stay on. Any advice on what to do aside from super gluing the cap on is welcomed. They're beautiful grips but just not functional.
Wow! I knew they were pricey going into it but they more than delivered. Perfect match to the brown leather saddle/seat to finish off my beach cruiser project. Fit and finish is superb...not to mention the comfort in their ergonomic design. If you are hesitating...Don't. Don't You won't be disappointed.
I don't know why I didn't get these grips earlier! The Ergo Grips are perfectly crafted for your wrist to not dump. It keeps your posture upright from your hands all the way to your upper back. Truly you can tell a difference when you ride with them. It is also super easy to install. The leather is gorgeous..matches perfectly with the Brooks seats.
These leather grips are beautiful and feel great. They were very easy to install and seem like they will stay very secure.
You can't lock down the e d cap, constantly fly slip off.
Poor workmanship. The stitching is already opening on one of the handles. I gave only had it form a week.
Very pleasing on the eye (and palm!). Looks very elegant and stylish. My 11 year old son thinks they look old fashioned and fuddy-duddy but what does he know? He's just a stupid kid. Lol. Get some!
Loved them very comfy
Definitly the most beautiful grips. Very high quality and worth the price.
