Grips affect how your bike feels and they can wear out quickly if you ride a lot. Here is how to change your Mountain Bike grips.

If you're on lock-on grips, this is really easy; just make sure you loosen them right off to remove the grips so that you don't scratch anything and, tighten the grips evenly and not too tight to avoid crushing or scarring your bars.
