Colony BMX coming through with their latest How To maintenance series video. This time around, they give you a short but sweet how to on fitting BMX Grips. The example they use in the video features hair spray, but there’s literally a hundred other ways to get the grips on from zip ties to rubbing alcohol, spit, spray paint, carb cleaner, tri-flow and more. You can even use an air compressor! This is a pretty “simple” process, but the way you choose to do it decides if you can ride immediately, or you have to wait a little while for the substance used to evaporate so the grips no longer have throttle grip where the grips spin and slide around. Regardless, if you ride BMX enough, you will find that changing grips is one of the most common repairs you will be doing on your bike, so you might as well learn now!
We want to hear from you! Let us know what you think in the comments below!
