I'm just getting back into biking after a number of years off. So, my mechanic skills are almost nil.
I've got a Monkey Lite DH riser bar to replace the stock flat bars. My problem is the aluminum sleeve on the stock C'dale XC3 stem won't fit over the bends in the new bar. Spoke with a Bikeline mechanic the other week and he told me to spread the sleeve with a wedge or similar tool. I'm concerned the sleeve may become warped or misshapen and damage the carbon bars when I tighten it down.
Any recommendations out there? I'd rather not replace the stem yet until I get some serious saddle time and learn to ride this bike properly.
