I was given an Alpinestars Almega XT for free and I was hoping to revive it. The original aluminum handlebars broke so I ordered a replacement as well as a new stem. It seems like 2 stems and even the spacers are about .5-1mm at most too small. Nothing fits that I've purchased seems to fit on the fork steerer. I've tried sandpaper and even a grinding stone to shave off just enough to get the stem on, but have failed.
tired and frustrated Im ready to throw this bike in the trash, except I really like it. Any ideas?
