one problem in my eyes...

no heat control. I've seen other brands of heated grips and other oxford grips that have heat/temperature control and for me this is a let down of the hot grips. I occasionally found that when my hands were too cold the hot hands heat actually hurt my hands where it was so hot against icy hands and had to turn them off for a while.

however for ease of use, installation and removal these are a great additoin for the money.

one other thought for you though, as the hot hands wire directly onto the battery I'd disconnect the power block when you leave it for a while - some people think its fun to just flick that switch when your gone, then your in trouble when you get back to the bike

I wont but these out of principle. Bike it used to sell an identicle product I believe even down to the shape of the switch box which they retailed at £29.99. At this price it was good value for money, proper grips will always be better but its a quick and in expensive solution which helps you forget about the products quality and imperfections. Untill all of a suddun bike it no longer sold this product and miraculously at the same time oxford did at an inflated price. And if I remember rightly theyve been putting the price up every year since, or at least it seems every time I look at the oxford stand in the nec. Poor show and to me sums up my opinion of alot of oxfords products. Over priced and with limited quality.
