Retapping threads

  • FFS. I just went to replace a bolt on the integrated mount holes on my Pro Stealth handlebars, and the fucking thing has crossthreaded itself.

    Does anyone on here have the experience to either (ideally) put a helicoil in, or able to retap to 6mm for me please?

  • I know of a few bike shops who stock helicoils and have the know-how to fit them, but based in London so probably no good if you're elsewhere. Also, many a LBS do re-tapping, but of course quite possibly someone on the forum could help you out.

  • Look up time serts, IMO better helicoils.
