Anyone know where I can purchase a set of foam grips like the ones that came on my H-Bars? Thanks.

QBP (a major parts distributor) Stocks the variety that comes stock from Jeff Jones. You can go to your LBS and have them special order them for you at a reasonable price.

I'd consider the ESI silicon grips as a very comfortable similar alternative as well, They are great on Jones and similar bars especially for a good combination of shock absorbency and grip.

Do you guys just cut them as you see fit? I assume you are talking about the road set you can get? Or just the regular chunkies?

Just use the standard ESI Chunky grips. No need to cut anything, they're perfect out of the package.

i put the chunky ones on the grip part and the racing type on the 'bar end' part.

Jeff Jones uses Dimension Cork Grips. You can get them online. Use a little spray adhesive and they'll be fine.

On my current set, I use ESI Chunky's with a wrap of Fizik Microtex tape. This works well too.

FWIW - I don't tell a comfort difference between the two and could equally be happy with either setup.

While the ESI grips are pretty nice - I particularly like the shape of the Dimension cork grips. Have a set of "J-bars" and really like them with those grips... Fortunately, both are inexpensive enough to try and toss if you really don't like them!

Cork is where it's at for me and my H-bar. I just use Cinelli Cork tape with nothing underneath and have been very happy. I tried ESI chunkies and didn't like them much. Over hyped/priced IMHO.
I used 1-2 layers of Cinelli cork (no grips) for ~5 years... worked awesome. I switched to ESI grips a year ago and never looked back. YMMV... ditto the H-bar... plenty of people dislike them.
