Comments about Nashbar Gel Grips:

For an ergo grip there is not much ergo to them. The pad for your palm is small and the material seems to be quite stiff. The grips also have a hard end cap which makes it very hard to adjust the grip position once they are installed, so I cut that off the first thing. They are adequate but not outstanding in the comfort dept.

      I replace the grips on my fat-bike with these. I noticed a big increase in comfort.

          I have several bicycles. They are all geared towards comfort. I have herniated discs and find the less jarring of my hands the less 'pain in the neck'!

                I used these for about a year, before the surfaces became sticky. I would not recommend buying these.

                    Great grips. Lots of extra grabbing power and cushion too. I bought two pair and I love them.

                      I use these on my hybrid and just love them. Useful suggestion is to use rubbing alcohol to install and they won't rotate on ya. These grips are really a great value and I'm just pleased as punch that I got them. My life felt somehow incomplete before buying these...

                      I have Nashbar Gel Grips on all 5 of my "serious" bikes, only the beach cruiser uses another (Nashbar Inferno) grip. The oldest pair is over three years old and looks like it will last forever.

                        Comments about Nashbar Gel Grips:

                        I bought two pairs of these grips for our city beater bikes. They are comfortable, well designed grips which are nice and squishy. They have a slightly flattened portion which offers a natural place for your palm to rest.

                        The only complaint I have is they aren't totally black. The picture is a little deceiving on the Nashbar site. They look like they are all black but the grips are black with a clear gel overlay. It's not a big deal but if you're picky about the look of your bike you may be unhappy.

                        Overall I didn't mind.

                            I trail ride mountainous rocky boulder strewn trails around the Phoenix area. I love these, they are both soft from the gel but plenty sturdy enough to grab on firmly when bouncing around narly downhills. Looked at all the local bike shops but none had the right shape/price. Delivery was fast and they went on without much effort with some lube.
