Clip ons?
 
Hi all,

I bought a 2016 Flat Track Pro on November 1st and I love it. Already put over 1000 miles on it. I kinda want to convert it to clip on bars, but I don't like the look of the Woodcraft riser adapter clip ons and the Rizoma clip ons are too expensive IMO. Are there any other options out there? I'd read somewhere that our fork tubes are 50.7mm, so would it be better to get 50mm and machine them slightly, or get 51mm and shim them?

I don't know about the bar or clips ons but: Measure don't read. If it's what you read, .3mm difference is slightly over 10 thousandths of an inch. To the bigger one, add shim stock if it won't clamp up. .012/2 = .006 if it will go, else .005 around the circumference. (no part changes) Relieve the smaller one with a small flapper wheel if necessary. May be slightly more esthetic. Work up to the fit slowly by testing fit, not measuring. I think a 2" one will work but you might have to wear it down slightly first.

Thanks! I'll measure and figure it out. I'll probably go with the 50mm and relieve it if necessary.
