Hey everyone, I'm newbie here and would like your opinion on something.
I work for a company out of Bellingham Wa. called FastCap and we're Beta testing an amazing new product called "MY GRIP! " It's a special rubberized material that you heat in hot water for 1min, wrap around your bike grips for a custom grip and squeeze. Once fully cooled (5-10min) you'll have a hardened rubber grip that's perfectly molded to your hand! For a limited time I'm looking for anyone interested in trying these out for FREE! Just shoot me an email with a preferred shipping address and I'll send them to you. The only thing I need from you is your feedback ASAP and any suggestions to help us better our products! To see more on the product and how it's used you can go to www.Fastcap.com , www.vimeo.com or www.youtube and type in Fastcap MY GRIP . Thanks! Look forward to hearing from you!
Happy New Year!
Marc

One might assume that I suppose. But I guess that depends on the individual and what type of biking you're doing.
Although we just started this testing, the response has been very positive!
I have a torn shoulder right now so I haven't been able to do much biking (on my old GT) myself. But I put them on anyway, and I have to say it's inspired me to ride more!
It's very comfortable! And if your hand shifts slightly from time to time it doen't make it uncomfortable or any real big difference!
Thanks!

Well I am also intrigued.

I´d not make a negative of my hand, but I guess you could mold your own grips and get the diameter/texture you like best.

Seems like a good thing for me!

Where can I get them? I am over here in Europe though ;)

Greetings Znarf

love them.. easy install. its nice I can remold them. they feel natural over the oem grips. I would advise to make the mold with your gloves you plan to ride with on. they feel a little with them on but not bad. I will try to post up some pics. they are a little bulky looking and not as clean looking as the oem's but hey comfort is top in my list of things. I feel like I'm dialed in with my bar especially when I am grinding up a big climb. if I had to, I would pay for these as long as they were reasonable. good product. also, sit in normal riding position when you mold them. if you are off to the side, your grip may be off just enough to annoy you on the trail. overall, love them. thanks for letting me test these.

Thanks for your interest! Have you got some already? If not we'll send you some. And be sure to check out our instructional videos on line at www.vimeo.com as we are always updating them as new applications and techniques develop.
And as we are continually learning how to improve our products, I just wanted to pass on a trick we've discovered when applying My Grip.
1. In certain instances it helps to pre-cut the My grip before heating (like on guns).
2.After you pull the My Grip out of the hot water dry off and get it started (wrapped around),
apply some water to your hands, as this will act as a release agent allowing you to remove your hand quickly after making the initial impression.
3.Be sure to mold and sculpt it to your liking. You have about 2 min to do this. After that just use a heat gun to continue sculpting if needed. (fully cools in about 10-12 min.)
4. Another option is to apply a texture material such as a nylon netting or a mesh material while still hot
Re-grip, squeeze and press the material in, then peel it off for a nice textured pattern of your choice.
5. To quickly cool the product just run some cold water over when applicable.
Any other questions, feel free to shoot me an email.
Thanks for your help
