I have a pair of Profile Design time trial handlebars and I'm trying to install some Nashbar brake levers on it. The levers aren't going in all the way with the expanding wedge plug and it looks like the bars are a little ovalized at the ends. They go about halfway in and I've tried hammering them. Does anyone have any suggestions on getting them in? Am I out of luck? Thanks.
MAke sure the wedge is not stuck on the body of the lever, in an expanded state. also, try putting an allen wrench in the bolt head and whacking that... stops the wedge getting pushed onto the lever & expanding.
If the bars are oval, you may be SOL. I don't know if they are.
Also, easy with that hammer. Al is not that hard to damage.
