I think guys w/ smaller hands usually prefer those.

I like the Pro Grips above, they are awsome for endurance. Plus, if you do get a little numb, just move you hand a little and those grips will let blood get to other parts of your hand.

I ride in the parking lot. And when I do my ride from Channel view to richmond they do viabrate. I like how they are not big. I was thinking about using some BMX grips?

Cut the old ones off unless you want to keep them. If you want to keep them use the blow gun on your air compressor, slip it under the grip and pull it off while pressing the air gun. You can use grip glue or you can use hair spray. The hair spray dries quick so get it on fast and of couse safety wire. Good Luck.

Me too, but I've been looking into grips for a while now. For $9.00 and an easy install, why not?? I'll probably grab some Progrips, those were the ones I was looking at anyway

Heavier bar ends will help a little bit with the vibration........I assume.
