Hey everybody,

I got some new stuff from bikenashbar yesterday... i'm having a hard time installing the bullhorn bars, I ordered (particularlly on the first bend... I've already scraped it )... anybody got some tips???

edit: man wtf i got it past the first bend... now I'm thinking: Do you guys have a hard time installing drop bars and the like (ya know, kinda extreme bends in the handlebar) into your stems?? this isn't making any sense for some reason. As far as I know, i do have the correct diameter stem (26mm), but WTF. Sorry, i'm a lil flustered

Keep the inside of the bend towards the opening of the clamp.

Exactly. The bars move freely like this, but get stuck the other way around.
