I have a Cinelli Nerve bar and a Cinelli Solido stem. I have the front way cranked down and when I hit bumps the bar slowly rotates. Any suggetikons to stop the creeping.

Thank you for the help!

Some have suggested roughening the bar and/or stem surface with about 100 grit sandpaper/emery cloth. Are you sure the diameters match? If your bolts are bottoming out, you might need a shim.

I've had a similar problem with a Cinelli XA stem and a Cinelli Eubios bar. No matter how tight I seem to crank it, it moves. Once it went over so far I almost lost control! I tried blue lock-tite, but it broke loose under hard testing. Didn't like the failure mode. I ended up cutting some business card stock as a shim. So far it seems to work. BTW 100 grit sandpaper seems extreme(chunky). I would think something in the 320 range would be better if you decide to rough it up.
Thank you to everyone for the suggestions! (nm)Juanmoretime
