Handlebar clamp diameter cannot grip enough the new handlebar which is too thin
My new handlebar center is too thin and the handlebar clamp can not grip it.
Could anyone give me a tip on how enlarge it ? Or anything to put between the handlebar and the clamp ?
Thanks a lot

you can buy shims for this, you need to know the outer diameter of the bar & inner diameter of the stem clamp
OK, that is called a "shim".Thank you. I did not know. Do you think I can just cut a metal tube into 2 pieces and use it as a shim ?
yes you can cut a metal tube (a sada/beer can will also work.) and use it as a shim. you might have to layer it to work, but it will work.
