In 2001 the grips were stolen and the rider carried on without. A good working interim arrangement is almost as good as an invention.
During years of massenger's riding the blank bar could be examined extensively. The holes are consistent and logic enhancements of the simple bar, wich without holes would neither have a good grip nor ventilation of palms.
In 2007 the founder of the brand had a bar with two friends in Krezberg, Berlin that was named Glutrosa Seegras (pink glowing sea weed). This in turn is a simple anagram of Glogauer Strasse (the street where the bar was located). Thus, the colour of the logo was already predetermined.
