Every avid cyclist should know how to fix his bike; learn the basics in this video series.
You Will Need
- Flathead screwdriver
- Spray lubricant
- Rubbing alcohol
- Air compressor
- Utility knife (optional)
Remove the handlebar plugs first. Then loosen the brake and shift levers and slide them toward the middle of the bar.
Slide the screwdriver between the end of the grip and the handlebar and life up the grip. Then squirt a liberal amount of spray lubricant or rubbing alcohol into the space between.
Wiggle and pull the grip out and away from the handlebar. Use an air compressor under the grip if you're unable to get it off.
Install new grips
Install your new grips. Slide them over the handlebars the same way you slid the old ones off.
