There is of course no end to the variety of handle bar grips on bikes. However I get tired of them going 'mankey' with sweat and humidity around this neck of the woods, so I thought I would try something different this time.
I got some padded road bike corking tape off eBay for about $4 posted. It came in two lengths (left and right side right) and I used about a third of one of the lengths to fit up my bar ends.
I secured it with a little bit of self anealing silicon tape (called tommy tape, used about 6cm of that) and they work great.
Cycling was meant to be cheap.
Like me ;-)
