In order to maximise the safe enjoyment of this product, please read and carefully adhere to the following installation instructions, hints and warnings. Failure to do so could result in unexpected wear and or failure, resulting in possible injury or even death!

Handlebar Installation Instructions:

Note: Please make sure that the stem you intend to use has a clamping diameter of 31.8mm before starting the installation process.  We recommend that no stem with a handlebar clamping force greater than 8Nm be used with this handlebar. If in any doubt, please consult your dealer.

•    Inspect your stem for any burrs or rough spots that could damage the handlebar. If any such conditions are found, take the stem to your dealer. If not, continue to step 2;

•    Clean the clamping area on your handlebars and stem to maximise the clamping ability of the components;

•    Make sure that the bolt threads on the stem clamps are well lubricated with a high quality grease;

•    Position the handlebar in the stem so that it is centred horizontally in the clamping area and rotate the bar until it is approximately vertical in the stem;

•    Tighten the stem clamps to the correct torque using the correct size tool. Please confirm the correct tightening torque with the stem’s manufacturer. Be careful not to over-torque the bolts as this may result in damage to both the stem and the bar;

•    Check that the installed handlebar does not slip or rotate when pressure is applied to it;

•    Now check that the handlebar is comfortable for you when standing or seated on your bike. If the bar requires slight angle adjustment, loosen the stem clamping bolts off and repeat steps 5 and 6 until you are happy with the angle ;

•    Install the remaining components (brake levers, cycle computers, etc.) in accordance with their respective manufacturer’s instructions;

•    Now ensure the rest of your bike is ride worthy and go shred!
