Post Spider Peak grips
On longer trips, my hands and fingers will eventually become numb. I have practiced loosening my grip, I filled my bar with silicone, I added bar end weights, and I've tried several sets of grips.

I installed a set of spider peak grips. So far, I feel less vibes through the bar. I will report back after my 6/1 trip to Dover how they do on longer rides. The grips are multi-layered and use have vibe absorption materials. You can read more about them here...http://spidergrips.com/spiderg/models/i ... peak-grip/

< I filled my bar with silicone>

Maybe should have added lead shot in with the silicone to add even more weight. It changes the natural frequency.

I read about people doing that. I probably should have. It was enough of a pain in the ass to do what I already did.

Which other ones did you try? Curious about how those compare to the gel grips I've been running.. (Can't remember the brand off the top of my head)
