  • Bent grip

    So my bike fell over the other day and bent the grip. I was all set to post a pic and ask for ideas on how to straighten it out, but tried bending it by hand first. I was surprised that it bent in the first place, but even more surprised that I could bend it back by hand. Not much metal there, I suppose. The material didn't crack or buckle, so if this ever happens to you it is worth a shot to go the direct route.

    Which side? If it's the left I wouldn't worry about it. If it's the right as long as the throttle still works don't worry about it. I doubt it them to handlebars.

      Left. Not worried; just sharing in case it might help someone else to know that at least these grips can be manually bent if necessary.

    I wouldn't expect a bent grip to be a challenge for IRONMAN. Let's see the before and after pictures of the crash bars!
