I was changing my breaks and had a nasty bolt stuck and wouldn't move after hours...I put some PB Blaster on it, and without exaggerating, it was out in 5 mins. Got it at Pep Boys. Might want to try that...http://www.homedepot.com/p/Blaster-11-oz-Penetrating-Catalyst-Lubricant-16PB-THD/202597469

I purchased this Cutter saddle/grip combo despite having some reservations about the quality. Picked them up from the warehouse by my house and thought at that price, it wouldn't hurt to give them a try. I got the black/red set which look pretty cool on my black/grey/red bike.
Both were pretty easy to install, and took about 10-15 mins. The saddle was a little rough on my first ride, but then I broke it in and rather enjoy it now! The grip is excellent, even if my hands get sweaty and don't feel like I have to use too much strength to hold on to.
Thanks for the info Wayne. I ended up going for the pair you suggested, and they made for great running all winter long!
I just purchased this item...does it only fit under the saddle or can I also move it under the top tube, exactly under the saddle? Am I making any sense?
How do these work for outdoor running in Winter? Has anyone given it a try before?
I'm rebuilding a Trek 3900. How do I know if this chain link will be long enough for the bike that I have? Do I just measure my current chain or can I tell by the number of speed? I've changed everything from the tires, the brakes, grips/saddle, etc...but not sure about this one. Also, do I break the current chain to remove it? Any online blog/site/YouTube video I can check out? Thanks so much for the help!!!
I bought this saddle/grip combo based on reviews here and others I've seen for my Trek 3900, and I've enjoyed it so far. I went on a ride for a few miles and not only was the seat really comfortable and sturdy, but the grips also allowed good handling on the road and stay dry. And for the price, you can't really go wrong.
This was my first purchase from Backcountry, but I'll definitely be coming back. Good prices and knowledgeable/helpful staff!
