    Default heated grips

    Hey,

    So in my small accident the handlebars got bent, i have now bought replacements, but the old grips are so tightly glued to the bars (well the left anyway) that i figure i might as well replace them and while i am at it just get heated.

    The only place that is really getting back to me is bikegear, they have desert fox grips for R850.

    Any suggestions?

    R850 is a decent price.

    Oxfords at my local bike shop are R1150

    I don't know Desert Fox, but Oxfords are top notch quality. Not sure if they are worth the price difference though.
