I spent a little extra time cleaning the bars this time before installing the grips so I’m sure that helped (wire wheel to get the old glue off and then prepped the surface with alcohol). Takes longer to cute than most but worth the wait. Grips are solid.
I've tried many types of grip glues, hairspray, paint etc to help hold my grips on my bike. I've ALWAYS wire tied them, and while they haven't come off in the past, they usually start to spin/twist on the handlebar.
This grip glue works great for fixing that issue. No more grip twisting on the bars. Usually lasts me longer than a set of grips.
Biggest downside is that it takes about 24 hours to fully cure, so plan accordingly.
This stuff is the best! Has a funky smell but does the job. Durability is top notch. Have never had a grip rotate on me (yes, I also use safety wire). Doesn't dry too quickly so it's easy to slide the grips on and position correctly. I've tried other glues and don't like how quickly they dry. Let it set overnight and you're good to go. One tube will do about 3 sets of grips for me.
I should've bought this stuff from the start! After trying Odi and Scotts grip glue without success, I gave Pro Honda a try. Now my grip doesn't move! Make sure to apply it quickly, because it dries very fast. Avoid getting it on anything besides the grip (such as your fingers), because once it's dry, it doesn't want to come off!
As others have mentioned, works better than the "Super Glue" type of grip glues. However, follow the directions (apply to both surfaces) and allow proper cure time before riding. Any extra that squeezes out does seem to smell for a week or more.
Dries fast but not so fast that your not able to get the grip on. Bought the renthal glue which is glorified super glue, and grip glue dried before I could get it on the handlebars. This grip glue is excellent and leaves a long standing bond.
I used to just put my grips on with a little brake cleaner and some safety wire. I still use the brake cleaner to clean the inside of the grip and handle bar then air dry, but now at a thin coat of this grip cement as added insurance. seems to be working and is an added seal to keep water out and prevent slippage issues. my grips still get the safety wire treatment but they would probably be fine without it. for the price, it is a worth having in you tool box and I used it to glue the sole on my running shoe tonight. bonus!
Be sure to have good ventilation and try to avoid getting it on your hands/fingers. wear nitrile gloves if you can, it is very hard to get off and smells god awful.. (I think that is a good sign) =)
