No more slippery poly's for me. A little piece of bicycle tube is all you need. Some bike shops have damaged tubes for crafters for next to nothing. Or share a new tube with friends. I have put tube pieces on 1/2", 5/8", 3/4", and 3/4' wood frames I cut out. It works on all types of fork tips, ocularis , TTF, & OTT. All the frames pictured have the same size tube installed, just a different length on some.
Try it , it is a nice , cushy grip. A little alcohol helps to slide them on after I turn the tube piece inside out and clean off the powder.
And Simple Shot's new black latex is great. I can't really tell if it better than amber latex or not. But it is at least its equal. Much nicer, & snappier than TB gold.
