has anyone else had a problem with their bars pinching.... i am 6ft tall n ride a 20.5 inch frame. i have my bars leaned about 2-3 inches forward over my frame and after about three months of riding they start to move on me.. so i tighten them and they keep moving so i tighten them more... eventually i look at them and sure enough the r pinched.. i was just wondering if anyone else has the same problem and what i can do to fix it with out buying a bigger frame

Get aftermarket bars. That happens to pretty much all stock bars.

Obviously the stem is fine if its crushing the bars. If the stem was getting deformed then it would be the problem and not the bars.
