Fin’s troubles.

An Excerpt taken from LFGSS about the tribulations of applying track grips.

I’m in the process of building a new stead and recently acquired some lovely bars and some soyo track grips to accompany them.
Riding home on friday night with said bars I was beside myself with glee that my bike was slowly coming together and itching to put the grips on.
How hard could it be!? I tried the washing up liquid approach, after heaving for 15 mins i only got one grip 1/3 of the way on.
I then tried the wd-40 method, at first 1/2 the grip slid on but after 30 mins of pushing and a hernia, only a couple of cm followed. I was uber pissed, I cursed soyo and nitto.

With it too late to get hairspray I drowned my sorrow with a nice glass of whisky (nothing special, Grant’s).
WAIT A MINUTE!!! I poured the whisky into my grips with a mindless conviction and tried them on the bars – 20 seconds for each grip it took me, 20 seconds!

Now not only do my bars look lovely but they smell great too. Next time im going to use a 14 year single malt for better application.

Thanks for that Fin… that little story had me chuckling into my coffee!
