Default Re: What Do You Do To Keep Your Seat From Moving

Yeah, I bought some of those cool repop vintage style handlebars with the cross brace. 7/8" tube bars with no center knurl or swedge area up to 1". Guy supplies this cheap aluminum shim with the bars. Those bars will not hold for anything. He said it was because I put them on a motorbike. Well, it was a pedal bike at the time. I tried steel motorcycle handlebar shims, too. They STILL moved. Seller said it was my stem so I tried a couple different stems. Still moved. I bought a properly manufactured set of good old Wald cruiser bars for $18 with center knurl and 1" swedge. Those bars didn't budge! Proper design, proper matching components, problem solved! Buyer beware.
