so i recently purchased daily grind high 4pc bars
these bars have barley any knarl to them at all like ive honestly never seen such low quality knarl on bars ever

this has made it retardedly annoying to get these bars centered on the stem correctly and evenly, i already have to go at it again with this bs because they are off to one side for the 3rd time in a row and now im here ranting about it haha

anyone else have these bars what does your knarl look like?

i had the exact opposite experience
my raw ones are so grippy that sometimes when i fully take off the top cap of my stem, the bars will stay in place unless i apply force
try a little piece of soda can to wrap around it to shim it?

That really sucks honestly. Can we get a close up pic of those things? I kinda wanna see how bad it is?

Does it look like an abnormality in the machining process or something? Maybe contact them and see if that is the case. Or danscomp or whoever you bought from. I contacted Danscomp when i received the wrong size headset cap and they were really nice and told me just to swap it out and send them it real quick and like 4 days later i had a new one that works!

Check your stem.

The knurling from the previous bars might have been pressed into your stem forcing your bars to follow the knurls on your stem, forcing it to be out of center.

The fact that you can't get them centered is YOUR fault. You never once mentioned that the knurling is off center which further leads everyone to believe still your fault, not the bar's fault.Let's add in that Steve's raw set has plenty of knurling and your black set supposedly doesn't. Sounds like user error once again. Have you even attempted to sand the paint off the knurling yet? I'm gonna assume that answer is a no.

I'm on the vital legit list!

3/28/2015 5:20 PM

i haven't had trouble with them slipping just getting them in there evenly centered

i barley can see the knarl, i was gonna use some paint stripper on them but decided to get them in evenly and hope for the best hahaha



best pics i can get some how my S3 camera stopped working right

why not measure the length of your stem (the area that clamps the bars), then measure the length of the bar (the area that the stem clamps). then do some math and draw in the lines to indicate where to center the bars.

@Tomdon

Have you even attempted to shut the fuck up and stop bashing this guy? In every single thread he starts, you have something negative to say. We all have problems with our bikes every once in a while, and this is the place that we can come on and ask questions, and there is nothing wrong with his question. Who knows? Maybe the bars are...I don't know...defective? Maybe he is doing something wrong. That's possible too, but you don't have to be a total and complete assface for no reason.

It probably has something to do with the fact that he has the mental capacity of a lampshade and manages to do absolutely nothing correctly, so you should probably shut the fuck up

It's spelled KNURL by the way

I think he means the knurling.

Btw to get that right, they grip fine and don't slip. But you're too much of a retard to hold your bars straight while you tighten the bolts? Holy shit, what is wrong with you?

3/31/2015 9:26 AM

yeah, learn to tape measure if you're that anal.

There is absolutely no guarantee the knurling is centered anyway.
