I'm tearing down and rebuilding an old Takara, and am running into a problem with the bar end shifters. I removed them from the original drop bars and am trying to install them into a similar set of old drops that are in better shape. The problem is, they won't tighten up in the bars no matter how the screws are tightened/loosened - the expander just sits still and they fall right out.
Does anyone have any insight into what I'm doing wrong? It seems like this process should be pretty straightforward, but clearly I'm missing something. Thanks!IMAG0110.jpg
