Tip & How-To about Cycling
Putting bike grips on can be a hassle. Taking them off has a habit of destroying them. We're going to use hairspray to fix that problem.
For new grips, just spray a quick shot of any hairspray into them, twist them on and let them sit for 10 minutes or so. You're done!
To take old grips off, without destroying them, insert a small screwdriver or allen wrench between the grip and handlebar. Push/wiggle it in as far as it will go and lift up to make some air space under the grip. Spray the hairspray into that space, pull the tool out and twist the grip back and forth until it starts turning freely. Now, just pull it off.
Rubbing alcohol works well, too.
