They went in with relative ease - a little levering but no scratching or scraping!
Seems ok but is anything going to snap? :shock:

Shouldn't be a problem......the main concern is the completely shagged bars from a cosmetic point of view as someone tries to "wind" the wrong set of bars across the gap in the stem....... :(

yes i was being a bit cheap doing this but no obvious signs of stress and I didnt have to use loads of force to get the stem on.....I will keep and eye on it and get the correct stem in the meantime!
