My Twenty6 clamps on my grips dug DEEP on my carbon bar, went through a few layers of carbon. Replaced the grip as a whole for now. Feelsbad/goodman.

Think of the weight savings. Yeah they're not really recommended for carbon bars but mine have been fine just don't wrench them hammer hand!

End caps? You never use end caps that tighten with a grub screw. Plugs or snap caps only

^this. I only run grubscrew barends in cromo bars.

And aluminum just never on carbon

Seraph: are you sure about the talas? When I switched to a bigger fork I just changed my riding style a bit. I didn't notice much of a difference. A float will be a bit smoother and quite a bit lighter.

You have to have locking grips with anodized locks to be in the cool club.

The Float is not much lighter than the Talas. The Talas is 3.81 lbs and the Float is 3.74 lbs. For the negligible weight increase I'd rather have the travel adjust feature.
