A simple trick costing only 10 cents can help protect your handlebar grip ends from getting torn up. I show you the ”nickel trick” that helps protect the rubber grip ends from being cut by the open end of the handlebars. What causes this tearing is usually something like the bike falling over and the end of the handlebar cutting into the rubber like a chisel. This helps cover up the sharp ends of the handlebars, and protect the rubber grip ends. It’s a cheap trick, but if you replace your grips, don’t be in a rush and forget to get your nickelback.
I had never heard of this, but a viewer turned me onto it. After some research found it was a thing. So I tried it, and thought it was a great idea. Still learning new stuff after all these years.
