  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Really dig this thing. Well worth its price if it's piqued your interested at all. I have this on a couple different bikes and haven't had any complaints so far. GripLock seems to be doing its thing very well, and I think I'll be sticking with these for the future.
