  • Is it safe to Bend handlebars?

  • I wouldn’t recommend bending handlebar — if the bar breaks (which is more likely due to the stresses you’re putting on it), you’re probably going to lose some teeth or worse. I don’t know your skills with metal, so I’d also probably not suggest the bent piece of tubing approach.

  • Can you put a curved handlebar on a bike Shim?

  • However to install it on a bike shims will be needed to make up for the bulge that handlebars have in the clamp area. I have currently configured my bike with a short straight handlebar fit with bar ends and it works pretty well for my purposes, but I’d like to have a rounded curve instead of the sharp angle that the bar and bar ends have.

  • How do I center the bars on my bike?

  • Put the bars back into the clamps and put the bolts back in but keep them loose. If you have fairly straight bars you can simply measure from each of the bar ends, inward, to get your bars centered.
