I just got a new pair of grips I haven't put on yet.

What exactly was the point of boiling them again? I might waste 10 minutes of my day if there actually was some reason.

Always did this back when I ran longnecks. It did seem to soften them up. That said, I've run Edwins for years and will never change that up.

Yep. Softens em up a bit, and gets rid of that slick oily finish that many grips come stock with. Only need to do it with harder compound grips doeee

horizontal lines just make it feel like full-time throttle grip. it's kind of sad that there's still no way to improve on longnecks.

I have a pair of S&M Hoder grips brand new, I always wanted to try to boil grips after reading about Chad DeGroot doing it back in the day for softer grips. I used to only ride ODI Longnecks and when they are new as most of you know they feel like fucking with an everlast condom put on inside out, just super thick and it just feels weird until they are worn in. Then they are the best grips ever, at their best is when they are about to die. But Im gonna put my grips I've been saving on once I fix my axle.
To boil, or not to boil... hmm?

I don't think I'll need to soften up Hoder grips though.

Unless somehow you could buy them pre-worn in.

I don't run brakes, I despise flanges. When I rode brakes I would always have my non brake side of the bars flangeless and the brake side Id keep the flange on, to protect my hand/fingers. Id even use a donut on that single flange. But even kids who don't ride who take my bike for a spin keep asking how come my grips are so comfortable. I thought Id never switch up from Cult x Vans ODI grips which IMO are the second best now that I have the BTM's on my ride. But I always end up going back to ODI Longnecks in the end.

passed out a few weeks ago after putting a pair of odi O grips on the stove to boil; woke up to a house full of toxic smoke & a pot coated in melted rubbber.
