    Answer ProTaper OS Carbon Question

    Just got a set of these bars and they have markings on them that state to only mount controls between the two marks but they seem way to close to the center of the bar to me. Anyone mount the controls outside of those lines and if so has it caused any issues?

    Protaper control mounting

    I just recently purchased a pair of protapers and noticed the same thing. A tech at Answer told me that it was an error on the placement of the marks and that the mounting marks should be 1 inch outboard from where they are. Hope this helps.

    InaMtb,
    I order my through the distributor that we use at work so that probably won't help but I would use the dealer locator on the Answer site and if your local dealer does not have them in stock I'm sure they can order one.

    I've liked my bar so far. Good luck.

    I got mine from beyond bikes for $89. They may still have them on sale.
