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.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
