I finally met William during my last trip up to the Bay Area, and I look forward to rides and coffee with him in the future. But just this morning, while obsessing over the Ebisu bicycle, I found this great post at his blog Workhorse Bikes.
So over here he discusses how to secure cork grips without the use of glue or hairspray. Simply wrap some cloth tape a few times around the middle of the grip area and push the cork grip over it.
That’s pretty darn good. Detailed instructions are included.
