Ergon grips

I was too lazy to do a search but, has anyone used these?

I plan to make a few upgrades to my mountain bike and have been debating on weather to get a set of these Ergon grips. They make so many different styles of them though...which ones do you have and do you like them?

I have been looking at the ones with the bar ends attached, for more hand positions.

Thanks in advance

I have them on my mtb and my commuter.

Love 'em.

My mtb has Grip Shift, so I got grips compatible with them. I think I go the men's as my gorilla paws don't need the smaller sized grips.

Unfortunately, I could no longer attach my mtb's bar ends to the handlebars once I put them on, so I don't have those any more and I miss them. I have the Ergon grips with integrated bar ends on my commuter. Pricey, but they do offer a lot more hand positions and I felt that was worth the price of admission. If I rode the mtb more often, I might feel justified in getting the integrated set for that bike, but right now, I just can't.

love em, have them on my hybrid which I ride many many road miles on, and my mountain bike.

Love them - won't leave home without them on any bike!

I have Titec bar-ends on the bike with SRAM grip shifters - they work fine. I only like one of the Ergon integrated grips/bar-ends and while they work well with triggers they don't play with grips.

Thanks everyone...my mind is set on getting a pair now.

I think I will go with the integrated ones that have the bar ends.

They have several styles so make certain you try them. Several have quite short/stubby bar-ends which might be too small. I have small hands and they are too small...

Thanks for the tip Catrin...I was a bit overwhelmed by how many styles they offer.

that's why I came to TE for help
