I dont get how people have a problem, my grips dont get loose. I use the glue that comes with the ProTaper grips...

i just use gas to slide em in, the gas will evaporate and the rubber from the grip wont let them slide

i used scott grips. slapped grip glue on the bars and in the grips. no stick....what can i tell ya? seemed fine at home, but after about 15 minutes of real use, they spun. did my wife's and mine, and 1 out of 4 grips stuck. the other 3 spin. bars are new, and are a little on the slippery side. maybe scuff 'em up a bit too?

Another one I have heard of but have not tried is to put electrical tape sticky side up and spray with WD-40 and put the grip on supposed to glue it all together but have never tried it!!!

Renthal grip glue. No sliping ever. And safety wire them on just to be sure.
