MTB bar ends: possible to widen the clamp 2 mm?
On my old bike, I've got Kusuki bullmoose handlebars with a 22.4-mm OD. I want to install some bar ends for weekend touring (I know, dorky looking but...). My searches tell me that all MTB bar end clamps are 22.2 mm and all are made of aluminium. So is it possible to widen the clamps 0.2 mm without cracking them or otherwise over-stressing them? And even if it's possible, am I risking a serious accident by doing so?
Thanks as always for any input.
