Bought in April and still loving the grips; plenty sticky enough although pattern is starting to fade now, but have had a lot of riding out of them for the price!
I really like the extra large diameter - other grips feel like I'm just clutching a twig now - though it might be nice to see a version that keeps the diameter, but with a slightly shorter length so they don't take up quite so much spac
Fitted the pads, bed them in... great. Within 4 hours of a wet XC ride they were finished. My original stock formula brake pads were supposed to be organic... but these were made out of cardboard in comparison. Very disappointing, only for dry/dusty trails, so not for the UK then!

These are goodish hoses, they are only a goodridge substitute and that shows, they are stiff and can kink very easily, my hoses are working etc at the minute but they feel so brittle just glad it is mineral oil in my brakes and not dot 4, would say they are equal to the stock shimano hoses,I got as my shimano hoses weren't long enough, do not make the difference that goodridge braided hose make bu

Poor customer service pointing the blame at the consumer. The Master Cylinder nut had the wrong size thread for 2012 formula RX brakes, and this i was told was not their fault.
