Recently given a diamondback bike, been thinking about riding it instead of my usual schwinn, but it has adjustable handlebars which I'm unable to get to stay tight.
Even with the allen screw at the adjustable junction tightened completely, the handlebars have a lot of play in them, essentially unrideable like this. I've completely removed the allen screw on the right side and checked that all of the "teeth" are not rounded, but they appear fine, I think that the give I have in the handlebars is from the allen screw itself not being large enough to completely fill the hole, but it doesn't appear to have wore down over time.
Anyone ever have similar problem with these handlebars?
Also any ideas for the rust on the handlebars?
