Grips are one of those parts of your bike you might not think about -- until you have either the misfortune of riding some really crappy ones, or the privilege of trying some that are truly fantastic. For a good bet, put your money on the Santa Cruz Palmdale Grips, and understand what great grips should be. The single inner lock ring teams up with a tapered internal sleeve that effectively clamps the other end of the bar. Slightly flared on both ends, The 125mm-wide (excluding lock ring) waffle pattern offers copious grip for gloved or ungloved hands, and the outer end is bolstered by 8mm of extra rubber as a "bumper" when leaning your bike or slicing through narrow trails. These are the smart details, brought to you by the employees at Santa Cruz, who spent an insane amount of hours perfecting these things. Available in Red, Magenta, Black, Orange, Tennis Yellow, White, Grey, Light Blue, and Green.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
