    I had a little off today and broke one of my lock on type bar grips on a fence 😳

    I want to try and buy another pair of the same grips, so I can keep the good one as a spare. Trouble is I didnt put them on and dont know where they came from. They have a “B” logo on them like the B in the Bata shoe shops, They also say “made in USA”

    Sorry about the crappy photo but does anybody recognise the brand and know where I can get them? Cheers

    Oh and yes I know I need to tidy the garage up 😉

    They are the future Steve 😉

    Let you change bars or just shifters and brake leavers in seconds rather than hours!

    Hours? Do you mean the drying time? 😕

    No silly, I am purley exagerating 😆

    I hate having to get the old ones off with a screwdriver, then cleaning the sticky crap off before putting it back on again 😕 Lock ons just seem a better “engineered” solution.

    With hairspray, I get mine on in 20 seconds and with my WD40-soaked skinny Philips screwdriver with rounded tip, off in about the same time. 😀

    TBH, it would take me longer than that to find the right Allen key! 😆
