There are a LOT of different handlebars out there, and we created a mounting base that can fit as many bikes as possible while still being simple to install. It's nearly impossible to fit every bike out there, so here are some little things you can do to optimize the fit of your mounting base if you're not satisfied.
It's ok if your brackets slide a little bit, but if you're having trouble finding the optimal fit with the mounting brackets try the following:
- If you're using the brackets without inserts A nor B, there is already a small foam insert built into the brackets that will reduce sliding. Sometimes this foam isn't thick enough to fully reduce all slipping. In this case, try adding a little bit of extra foam, electrical tape or a piece of old bicycle tire tube in-between the handlebar and the brackets.
- If insert A is too tight but insert B is too loose try using both. Putting insert A on the top bracket and insert B on the bottom bracket can give a good fit for handlebars that in between 22.2mm and 25.4mm.
- If insert A is too loose you must have the tiniest handlebars ever! Try adding a little bit of extra foam, some electrical tape or a piece of old bicycle tire tube in-between the handlebar and the brackets.
