Flexing my muscle
I have been noticing my steering has become different since I did a decent off road ride a couple of months ago. Ive checked all the usual bolts etc and could not find anything wrong. The bike has 12000km on it and the PO put ProTaper bars on it which have the cross brace. Yesterday I was riding home and sitting in traffic when I decided to strecth a little. It was then I noticed how much the bars flex and then saw the bar moving about 6mm where the brace is supposed to hold it. Got home and tried to tighten the allen bolt on the brace, but its as tight as my ex's solicitor. As I have never bought or used bars like this, but are they meant to do this and if not, how should I fix the problem. The left side is the only side that the brace slides on but both sides of the bar flex. I know there should be some flex, but how much is too much? Please help
