Hi all, i need to order new grips tomorrow but i cant decide witch one to buy, i will buy pedals and some other stuffs so i only have 5-6 euros to spend on grips, but i need new grips really bad. I change grips very often, i don't know if its problem in me or i just don't have luck with grips. Last grips i had was "Proper Team Grips", everyone says that this grips are durable but mine lasted 1 month. So please guys help me with this, i need long grips, bcs i hold bars tightly, i mean 147mm or longer will be good. Here is what i found:

Federal Contact Flangeless Grips



The Make Death Hand Grips



Fiend Team Grips



Subrosa Skeleton Crew Grips



Primo Boy Grips



Macneil Zoomer Grips (but i don't know how long thay are...)



I will buy this parts from "chainrectioncycles" so if you guys can find some other grips there that are better than this that i cited, plz tell me, color doesn't matter...

Thank you in advance!!!
Peace!!!

ODI longnecks. Mine last me a year or two if not longer. (I changed my color scheme before I came close to wearing them out.)

I am sick and tired of the "cliques" that this sport has recently developed. We should embrace the fact that we all ride a little kids bike, and not worry about the small details. When you take riding in its most basic form, we are all the same.

Will 7 MM really make that much of a difference?

Honestly I always suggest somewhere between somewhat soft and hard grips. Harder grips last longer, BUT they can cause more callouses.
