Ergon Grips: First Thought

More late season snow had me grabbing the mountain bike for my ride to work. It was a good chance to try out some Ergon grips that Dave N. loaned me. They remind me of BMX grips from the past. First impression is that I like them and think that they may be the ticket for the GDR but my issues with my hands revolve around the fact that I have done some terrible things to both of my thumbs during ungraceful ejections from my bike. The Ergon grips seemed bigger in diameter where my thumbs go which could cause more problems than fix. The only way to tell is more long ride. And March looks like a monster month for training. With some double centuries coming up and numerous long overnighters I need to log some serious saddle time.

You might want to look at the Womens (Small for 2007) model. It's a thinner diameter and easier to wrap your hands around. If you have specific questions....e-mail me.
