Ah you use the Oury's. Are they much different to odi rogues? I used to run those a few years ago. At some point in the semi near future I'll be building a bike up so maybe I'll experiment a bit more.

Haven't used a Rogue in ages. From what I recall, Oury are softer and have more shear deformation, which is the most important parameter. Oury may be a little thicker and I like the lip at the outside edge.

Sensus Swayze single ply / slip on. I can't see ever going back to lock-ons.

This or Renthal’s for me! Those plus flatter lever and arm pump is all but gone.

Fair enough. Might give them a try.

Esi for me. I get way more fatigue when I run any other grip.

I had a pretty significant hand injury in 2015 wher i broke 3 or the metacarpals in my left in clean in half and had a partial fracture in the fourth only 3 or the 4 healed while the third is still broken to properly fix it I would require a pretty significant suregery that would result in limited mobility. The ONLY grips i can use that don't cause extreme pain after a half hour or so are ergon GE1, i think good palm support is a very important factor that is often overlooked.

The standard ones initially although i moved to the evo since they've been discontinued.

Ge1 for me too. Made a world of difference for hand pain. Got really into ESI gloveless for a while but they literally can’t touch the ground without shredding to bits.

I keep forgetting Antidote Bikes exists. They don't get much press I suppose.

looks like a more elegant propain (a good thing)

God.. I hate Cane Creek as a suspension company so bad.. And they have totally shafted me before. But that new progressive Inline Coil shock is exactly what I want for my Levo. I can't decide if I want to roll the dice on them or not.
