Re: removing handle bar grips
I saw, a few entries back, a method similar to mine. Here's an almost effortless way, for those who don't have compressors and don't feel like exerting themselves, and may have a really stubborn grip: use rubberbands to strap a gel freezerpack or two onto the handlebar. Then go get your wife's hairdryer (she never reads this site, so I'm okay) and heat up JUST the grip. After a little while you can just slide it off. No hammering or sweat or anything. But be prepared to explain where you're going with the hairdryer.
