I did not want to buy a large tube or bottle of rubber cement to use this one time. This is an excellent value and it is just so convenient! Having never installed grips before, I could probably have used more because there was still a little left in the tube but I would much rather use this over an old bottle sitting around from last time.
The past 20 years I been using paint and enamel to install grips. The renthal grip glue back in the day did not hold grips on so I give up on it. Recently someone give me ODI grip glue to try. This brand alone chaned my outlook on grip glue completely. No more spary paint on my bars, the ODI grip glue works and I plan on using it for now on.
This grip glue gives you a decent time period to get the grip on and position it before it sets. Not like other glues where you have 5 seconds to do everything. I had about a minute to get things where I wanted them.
Pretty hard to get the grips on fast enough. I have learned to smear it on good then spray a light coat of cheap hair spray over it. Only down fall is you need to let it sit overnight to dry. I have done this several times with no issue.
I can't give a long term review as I just recently installed the grips, but I can say you don't need much at all ! My first attempt I had too much glue and I could not get the grip all the way on, so I took it off, re-cleaned the bar, then reinstalled with less glue. It seems to be holding firm.
Super sticky glue and plenty of it for two grips. Dried very quickly for me even on semi-humid day. On my thoroughly cleaned handlebar and throttle tube, the glue bonded my grips solidly and without much mess. It has the standard puncture-the-metal seal on the tube when first used so there is no fine tip applicator. So if you were going to use it for another purpose it might be hard to be super accurate.
I bought two tubes in case I needed it, but ended up only using one. Did exactly what the paper recommended on installing them, and was riding 12 hours later and they were 100% dry. 20 hours later, and the grips are holding great w/ no movement!
Got this expecting some special "grip glue". Appears to be basic contact cement. Nevertheless, it's cheap and does what it's supposed to. Perfect amount for 1 set of grips so there's no leftovers to worry about
