Bar End

Post by West Oz Binder » Tue Jan 01, 2019 4:28 am



Hi all, I have a question about bar ends. Is there any way to push the bit that the bar ends screw into further up into the handle bar? My left hand bar end doesn't screw all of the way in. When I compare it to the right hand end (which is OK) the bit that it screws in to doesn't look far enough inside the bar. I've tried some judicious 'percussive maintenance' on it but without result. Can anyone help?

Cheers

Mal

Is there not a screw centered in the bar end? If so (and there should be) you would need to back the screw off, and then tap the end in further, and retighten.
It ain't about the destination - it's all about the journey

Thanks mate but I've already tried that and I wasn't able to tap it in any further, that's my problem. I thought there's perhaps some secret method of getting the thingy further up into the handle bar.
