    trying to stick it in the hole

    how should i get reverse brake levers into the ends of a set of steel cruiser bars? (currently the bar diameter is too small.) should i shave the lever insert part down? slit the bar ends? just hammer the crap out of them?
    (this is relevant because it's a ss build.)

    I kinda got disappointed realizing we weren't talking buckets again. Even if I rage against it, I still have a few secret jpegs of the stuff way back in the recesses of the disk drive.
