Is there a method for installing my Syntace clip-on TT bars that will keep from scratching the heck out of my brand new road bars? The teeth of the TT clip-on looks like they will leave my bars mutilated.

I've tried two things-

1. electrical tape wrapped around a few times
2. a short piece of an old tube

It shredds both of them, but they work. Good luck!
how about those methods on a kestrel carbon bar?bicycle268

I'm looking for a way to install my profile carbon strikes on my Kestrel bars without damage.. Kestrel says it can be done but I wouldn't want to mangle the clear coat...
