I have a stock apline 2009 wanted to know if there are any type of handle bar grips or anything I can do to reduce the sweat?

I tried gloves but my hands get too hot.

New grips won't help you. The 2009 Alpine frame geometry is such that the seat tube angle pushes the rider forward, placing more weight on the hands and causing them to sweat.

The 2008 Alpine has a slacker seat tube that results in chronic 'steamy buttock'.

Do you want your hands to stop sweating? That is how your post reads and I don't think anybody is going to help you with that. However, if you are loosing your grip and want to fix that, we might be able to help.

Gloves are the only way to go.
Maybe you just need some better/cooler gloves?

Have you participated in any sports where your heart rate gets above 140 and you don't sweat? It's a natural part of working out, when I'm done riding I usually have a full change of clothes in the car. If your hands are sweating you need different gloves, I use full finger and I've tried about 10 pairs before I found the ones that work for me.

riding with gloves prevents blisters and gives better grip and most of all protection when you hit the ground..

To "reduce the sweat" I suggest(ed) you look into your diet

Now here's where you open yourself up for a "smart(ass) comment" :madman:

To stop yourself from sweating, you'd have to die

The OURY's are comfy and have channels for sweat to flow away from the outer portion of the grips..

They don't cost a lot, so giving them a go wont hurt the wallet...:D

read the entire post before you comment on just mine, someone previously had thought I was trying to stop sweating which if he had any common sense that obviously wasn't what I ment.

as far as my diet, I haven't touched junk foods in months and have been eating healthier, I went biking it was 88 degrees out and my hands where very sweaty to the point where they were slippery on the girps, I wanted to know how to reduce the sweat on the grips without the use of gloves, thats all, and then the thread turned into an atempt to make me look retarded. :nono:

Your best way to hold the grips while sweating is to wear gloves. Have you ever noticed that pretty much every other rider is wearing them? As I've said in a previous post: If the first gloves you tried are too hot on your hands try another pair, there are many different types out there. I would suggest going to REI and try some of their gloves they have a very liberal return policy if you don't like them.
