At the currently sale price of $12 this is a no-brainer. I didn't even need grips so I haven't used those, but they feel great. A nice medium thickness and softness that should be pretty comfy for most hands. The saddle is what I was after. It's a bit longer than average which makes it look kind of funny, but it's a respectable weight (considering the dirt cheap price) and is actually super comfy. I generally ride 10-20 miles at a time on single track and haven't run into any comfort issues with this seat. Can't comment on longevity yet, but for the price if I get half a season out of it I'll be happy. Although it seems plenty burly to last as long as the average saddle. In short, if you're considering this and have any need for a saddle OR grips then get it! It's a crazy deal, and you or a friend are likely to need the other part of the package eventually if not right now.
