    RibGRIPS, Has anyone tried them yet?


  2. #2
    I have not tried RibGrips (they are a bit pricey).

    I have Surge hand rims (21" for 540 wheels) on which the grip strips wore out, but the grip strips are NOT replaceable So I ordered Fit Grips Pro about a month ago; they're much less expensive (than either new Surges or RibGrips). I have enough hand function to grip, and the bottom the Surge remains exposed (aluminum), so I brake there with gripping. I'm quite pleased with the Fit Grips Pro on my Surges. Someday I may glue them on (glue is provided with them), but they are quite functional unglued (unglued, they move side-to-side a bit, but do not slip in line with pushing).

    RibGrips, grip strips, Fit Grips -- I'm so confused . . .
