- Glueing the ends back on bars…
Since getting a dh bike with 800mm bars my 680’s on my normal bike have felt way too narrow to the point where I’d started to go off the whole bike. The other night I chopped 40mm sections off an old set of bars and used them as inserts for the outer lock on clamps to grip. I was expecting it to be a fairly flexy bodge to let me see if the wider bars made a difference. In reality the whole things very stable, I like the width and although I’ve every intention of getting a proper set of bars there’s a strong possibility the same three piece bars will still be in place this time next year 🙂Posted 4 years ago
So I’m trying to be a bit tight and not fork out £60 on bars that are 1″ wider.
I found the two little 1/2″ bits of carbon bar I cut off the ones on my El Mar ti on the garage floor this evening. Shows how much I clean my garage as they were fitted in March 2011…. Two dabs of superglue later and my bars are back to full width and £60 saved. I reckon the lock-ons and their hard plastic inside bits will distribute the weight along the bar enough that it won’t be an issue…
Will I die?
