How do they compromise handling/comfort? I run them on my DH bike and they are very comfy and they have never slipped. In fact, I switched out a set of ODI lock-on's for them.Dope. Nice job with the fork-breeding.
Is it really necessary to compromise your handling/comfort on grips? Since when are a certain pair of grips too heavy? Is this bike really still too heavy?
Regular grips aren't too heavy. The OP just asked where he could shave weight, and I answerd him. And the OP can be the only one to answer if the bike is too heavy or not.
