So i went ahead and bought the wrong size grips and now they're up for swap/sale

Cole Foster Antique grey marble
size 1 inch fitment

If you want them make a decent offer, ideally if you've got something similar (in the correct size naturally) I'll gladly do a swap.

cheers

nah it was a private seller, who presumably did the same as me, so can't really send them back as he did have picture of the tin showing the size in the listing

Then bung 'em back on eBay and hope to God that there's another 'elsieem' out there... ie someone who thinks antique grey marble is a nice look for handgrips and presses 'buy now' before reading the whole ad through... ;)

In my skint old days, I would have just wrapped about 3 layers of electrical taped around the bars and forced the grip on with the aid of a hot air gun. If you get movement, you haven't used enough tape. Last pair of grips done like this, had to be cut off several years later.
