About: My full time job as an Organ Grinder keeps me pretty busy but that's just small change. My part time work, as a Mohel, keeps me up to date on my student loans from UCLSD.

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.
