Only wood is good.
Well – “only steel Is Real” – but “Only wood is good”. There is nothing comparable to wooden grips. Always right temperature, always good looking.
So when I started refurbishing great classic bicycle, I discovered – there are a few good products on the market and still some missing.
One personal favorite is Velospring: fantastic engineered grips with high-tech for the convenience of touring riders. We have build some bicycles already and there was great feedback.
Of course I started also developing a small series due the fact I had a bunch of great wood like cherry, lime and olive. Also we started looking for recycling wood – an great idea.
Xmas Special 2015:
If you have your “own” wood – i am able to turn you your own grips. Your size, your color, your wood.
