gusy, doesn't any of you use road bar type? i'm running it for like last 5+ years and i'm very happy with it. It's like 20g for pari (for grips) you can modify it to any thikness and width you like, plus color choice is great. after all it's cheep
I used to use bar tape, but found it's not the most comfortable of the lightest for me.
I'm currently using Specialized new XC Lightweight foam grips. 12grams the pair and quite comfortable even after a 6 hour race, no sore spots!
Before these I was using ESI Racers Edge for a couple of years. Very nice grips.
