What would you guys recommend in the way of lock on grips? I was thinking about the intense lock ons, the race face diabolus lock ons, or the cane creek lock ons. I was also thinking about the Oury's, what do you guys think?

yeah ODI is pretty much the start all end all since 1990's.

Ruffians for size med-small hands with prescision feel.

Rogues for med-big hands or beefy feel.

does anyone have a problem of them slipping off. I have them on carbon bars, so maybe the bar itself is kinda slippery. the other day and the right odi just twisted off.
sandpaper the insides? Or just torque them tight..

a little squirt of hairspray will do the trick

Been running rogues for 3 years, and tried ruffians too. Ruffians were too small for my hands and they wear out much faster that the rogues too. I've heard good things about the odi as well.

For you guys with carbon bars, you really need to check your manual or check with the manufacturer becasue from what i've heard, you are supposed to use a torque wrench when clamping your carbon bars. I'm no authority on the latest carbon tech but a too tight clamp on a CB is supposed to be a bad thing.
