Slipping bar ends crushed aluminum bars, preventing?
As a continue to sort through my bike pile... My Miayta came with ultra light, straight Nitto aluminum bars. Previous owner had narrow, very smooth bar ends mounted. Funny thing is that they were slipping even though they were cranked _way_ tight. The ends of the bars were deformed to the point where they looked like necked rifle cartridge cases.
The bar is already super short so a new one is in my future, but I'm wondering how common is this? If you're using really thin bars how can you keep smooth bar ends from slipping without really reefing down on the bolts?
