Beware of these grips, they bite.

The first 2 times I raised my head up it was ouchy but tonight I raised my head with force and dropped to the ground in pain and handful of blood.

Be careful around these things. They may look cool but they hurt like hell when they meet your head.

I have the same one and I hate them. They got my forehead once and it got me good. I love the look but they hurt.

Looks like the end of a self defense flashlight to me

That looks like it could hurt night time. When I was about eight years old my uncle had an old pinhead chopper with no kickstand. It was leaning up against a wall. I managed to pull it down on myself and it was missing the grips. The end of the handlebar went right into my Palm trapping my hand against paps old ford galaxy. If he would have had those grips it would have went through my hand.

It's funny how we keep expecting leaders from a system that rewards weasels.

They are hand grips. Why are you hitting your head on them? :what: You are doing it wrong. ..

I have them as well,have not managed to hit my head ,but have scrapped up against several times. The looks outweigh the danger though.

I've had the same grip ends for a year and have never hit myself with them, but now I'm sure I will now and I can see how they would hurt like a mofo.
