I just stumbled across these sleeves to fit 7/8 bars into 1" risers. I'm pissed off because had I known they existed I would have bought some risers when I bought my seat bracket (top piece of gear that investment cast item BTW)

Has anyone used these sleeves before with any success?

I don't think this is tool and tech either, but yeah, they work great.

Now you can also make them out of copper plumbing pipe. Just cut it in half and scrape lines into it like how those are. I can't remember what size pipe it is but it wouldn't be hard to figure out.

I'm running renthal fat bars and am currently using a set from Joker Machine. Cheap and worked flawlessly. I think they ran around $20.00.

Yeh good call. Although it probably wasn't a tech thread, it's getting closer to becoming one!

Cheers guys.
