- Make use of three or four long plastic ties to serve as “runners” to help you slip your grasp on. Place the plastic ties in the grip on opposite sides of the grip, then slide the grip onto the bike using the smooth, low-friction zones created by the ties. After that, just pull the ties back out to complete the installation.
Are handlebar grips universal?
Yes, for the most part, mountain bike grips can be swapped out for one another. If you have an older mountain bike, you may need to measure the diameter of the handlebars; however, if you have a newer model, this is not as critical a consideration. The only issue that you could run across is the length of the grip, which is a bit of a pain.
