    After a wreck yesterday, I destroyed my right grip and need a replacement. I'm looking for a squishier grip or a nice ergo grip would do as well. Preferably in a lighter blue and lock-on.

    I'm also looking for a decent 11 speed shifter with a pointer finger trigger, similar to the link below but separate from the brake. I know Shimano makes one, I saw it on a lower-end hard tail , but probably not quality and I don't see it on the website. I like the feel of the pointer finger trigger shift. Not picky on brand, just needs to not be garbage. Any help is appreciated.

    Never tried them, but I'm not against it.

    cover $5 shipping and I'll mail you a pair of these, if interested and if they're the right shade of blue to get Westy's attention.

    I'll give my stamp of approval only if the color matches his socks.

    If I chipped my carbon bars right on the end, should a replace it? Doesn't seem to have damaged the integrity.

    If this is just a surface chip don't worry about it.

    If it gets into the fibers I would trim them back to undamaged material to prevent propagation of the damage.

    That's the least structurally significant part of the bar. I refuse to use carbon handlebars but even I wouldn't worry about that one.

    Once I'd already accepted the certain death diagnosis of running carbon bars in the first place that is.

    Don't worry about Kidwoo. He only rides bars wrought from the purest bronze and wheels hewn with Flint tools from the finest 26" logs.
