    I tried plastic dip and it was not a lasting option.

    Looks good but Surge LT hand rims are a poor design.

    I had it with babysitting this strip. I tore it off. I have the thumbpiece which compensates for the missing strip.

    Don't miss it. But if I do, I'm thinking of painting something on as a replacement. Maybe something like plasti dip.
    That's the same problem I am having. Couple weeks later another section comes off and I have to super-glue back down. I am hope these will last until my next ZRA arrives shortly.

    I'm a para and use natural fit rims. I always push with leather batters gloves and don't see any need to add rubber to the equation, especially now that I have a SmartDrive to get me up steep hills.

    Natural Fit Surge pushrims

    Has anyone worn out the Naturql fit Surge pushrims? The rubber on mine is almost gone and torn in one place. Is the rubber replaceable? Or, do you have to get all new rims?

    Sounds like the Gekko handrim is the way to go since it's replaceable

    The Natural Fit handrims are great because they are ergonomic. But I find the strip to be pretty much useless for my needs. Actually worse than useless because the rubber stains my hands and it's a maintenance nightmare.
