    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.
    From Craig's List: IF its a singlespeed that means----all the other parts are broken cut off and dumped...dont buy singlespeeds, the bikes will make your balls fall off

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