I installed the Ergon Grips for gripshifts on the Xootr Swift, I figured that the bar ends will help me climb better since the bike’s wheelbase is rather compact. I rode my 20 mile commute and I was very impressed by these grips. I do own a pair of Specialized Ergo Grips, but they are not as comfortable as the Ergon Grips.
The bar ends gave me another position to rest my hands, eliminating that tingly and numbing feeling that I get from time to time. They also helped me climb that dreaded 5 fwy over pass with ease and confidence.
I will keep riding with the Ergon grips, stay tuned for my upcoming review.
