    I'm fitting these to my no. 2 commuter , however the bars are just marginally two big for the brake levers making them slightly loose. Any idea how I could make them tighter and not move? The tightening nut is as far as it can go.

    I have thought about fitting a collar made from an old tin can or possibly gluing them in place.

    There was me thinking of a baked bean tin and of course a Coke can would be perfect. Thanks guys.

    gardening gloves would be good. the edge of a coke can after a scissor cut is the sharpest thing known to man:ohmy:
