aber hallo vs knurling

I noticed my Nitto drop bar keeps rotating while I ride enthusiastically. I had to use massive hand force on the clam, to keep the drop bar from rotating. With the straight bar, it never moves or rotate while riding...but I notice this bar has heavy knurling. So my conclusion is knurling is very important.

I need something like Aber Hallo to reduce the reach of the Nitto drop handlebar on my Dahon.
(I notice alot of FB have long Reach...what's up with that?)

The Nitto drop bar has knurling in the center...but the Aber Hallo does not clamp on the center.
It clamp on the side where the bar is smooth.

Have yall Aber Hallo user with drop bar experience any slippage problem at all?

There is a drop bar adapter (sorta) that you can put on flat bars to give you the lower position of road bars that you might look into.

red loc-tite is useful .. intended use tighten loose drop in cartridge bearings but it can stop your slipping clamp around bars situation

It is a stronger bond than the blue threadlock.

knurling is a machine process usually done on a lathe it roughens the surface, with a pressed in diamond pattern

but reduces the contact surface.. somewhat like riding knobbies on pavement.
