Ergon Commuter Team
was pretty nice, and I was excited to see my new grips. Here they are straight out of the box:
As evidenced by the BioKorks, Ergon is trying to reduce their impact on our planet, and they have done a great job of eliminating plastic with their packaging. Check out the back of the package:
The second grip is inside of a recycled cardboard box (above). The "display" drip slides onto a cardboard tube, rather than being trapped in impossible-to-open plastic packaging. Here are the grips side-by-side:
While most of the folks on the commuter team opted for the GP1s, or the BioKork GP1s, I knew these were going on my icebike, and I wanted to have an additional hand position on that bike, since sometimes riding through 6-8" of slushy snow is a lot of work.
These are going to really round out changes that I've made to the icebike this year. More on that later!
