    Base bar grips recommendations.

    Im after a set of decent quality thickish foam grips for a Quik base bar. The grip thats on now is a handlebar tape thats wound on. Its far to shiney, unwinds itself, its hard to get a good grip of and its COLD. Whats out there that would be better than what Ive got at present??? G.

    I've used the handlebar tape available at cycle shops. The final part I dabbed with superglue to stop it unravelling, been on two years now no problems

    Possibly not what you had in mind, but I used cricket bat handle rubbers. When I acquired my Chaser the base bar was VERY slippery, but now I have great grip.

    I've used 3 grips on the base bar of my Quik, stops the base bar from sliding through whatever you use to secure...
