Introduction: Inner Tube Bike Grips

Picture of Inner Tube Bike Grips

Just a quick photo to post my bike grips.  I used an old set of grip ends and a 10 speed bike tube. I did have to clean the tube first and then soap the bars to get them on but its no big deal.

Cool! I wonder if a larger tube could squeeze over some cheap foam grips making them less waterlogged and not so easy to tear.

Now that's a good idea! Those foam grips never last here in Arizona.

26" work great, no adhesive needed. But I did have to slit the tube long ways then sew it up with wax thread (my foam xtra thick)Trying to upload pics.

Hmm, just had a tube burst on me today and my grips are pretty worn out. You sir may have save me a few bucks. Thank you for the idea!

I did have to give them a second scrubbing but they are working just fine.
