Bent Barclamps

Postby mohawkman2 » 08:51 pm Sep 03 2013

I am been doing alot of hill climbs and have been laying over the bike hard but that just part of riding. Anyways my bar clamps keep bending where you mount it in at the fork area. Do you guys know of any good bar clamps that are strong and won't really bend unless you wreck pretty severely?

Are they bending, or are they twisting? In other words do they both bend back (or forward) or does one go forward and one back? The KDX clamps are known to twist due to the rubber bushings and no top clamp to tie the two sides together. Something like this will help if it is twisting you are suffering. Upper Bar Clamp. If you really are bending the bar clamps then likely you'd also be tweaking your bars.

I run `enduro engineering` bar clamps...machined from billet alloy, they also raise the bars & move them forward too...have fallen off a few times & they haven't moved yet! :grin:
