These weighed 5 grams each.
I was walking through the arts and crafts store yesterday looking for finger paints and found some thin felt with adhesive back.
The result turned out really nice at 3 grams each.
I didnt want to waste black weighing it so here is some brown.
So i thought if i have to pay and work on them i better just do my own.
I just cut a rectangular bit and put glue on the lever. Then I just put this bit on the lever and press it on the lever. Then I cut the sides almost right. Just leave some millimeters.
Then I take a lighter and go over the hole lever with it. With this you make it a bit more plastic like. You can decide how much you smelt the outside, more=more plastic but less comfy on the hands. You even smelt the sides to the ride length with the lighter.
After that,you can sand it a bit if you had made a a bit to plastic.
If you have normal levers, you should sand them a bit before and use some glue wich works on that plastic.
On my carbon levers, it works with kinda everything.
It is good to even made that before the bartape. So you can get it a bit under the tape and the tape holds it in place too. And the sides look a bit better with the bartape over them.
Off course it is not as comfy like shimano or campa but I think it works fine. The longest I had it on was 12000km and just changed it because I chanded the levers.
I'm sure you could wrap your grips in anything actually. I'm thinking about trying some Alcantera. and it it works do my bars too.
