Singlespeed & Fixed Gear - Got...Handlebar shims?

Does anyone have a 25.4 to 26.0 handlebar shim lying around they want to get rid of? PM me if you do; I'll send you a few dollars. The girlfriend wants flat bars rather than drops :rolleyes:

Try a beer can. I can send you plenty of those.

yeah, a can works fine, especially because you can't induce much rotational torque with flat bars.

I used a can-shim, too. I got some comments in this thread about it when I asked in the mechanics forum. If you have a machine shop near, look for a shim, or else, just use an aluminum can cut to size.
Sweet, I'll give it a shot. They're riser bars to be exact but at 105lbs I don't think she'll be puttin' too much force on them.
btw: That's why I love this forum....pop cans...BRILLIANT!
