I would glue them mike you would be pissed off if they start turning when they get warm I used to glue and wire them on my m/x bikes and the feckers would still sometimes turn, mind I had a fare bit more grip strength in them days.

I'll keep an eye on them Ian if they look like they are moving I will glue them. Mark said its a very fast contact adhesive (about 20 secs) and its high grip, I had to do a bit of twisting and pulling to get them on took about 4 mins a side and I didn't want them stuck half on half off!  Laughing and Katherine won't be gripping on them that hard, the bike struggles to do 60mph!!  moped

if they are really tight to get on mike and you don't want to use glue spray some brake cleaner or a bit thinners in the grip they slide on dead easy and the solvent then evaporates off. easy peasy.
