so my carbon bars have marks where the shop set up the brakes. I moved them inboard about an inch and without over tightening ( I was pretty conscious of this) the marks are in that position also. It seems like a paint coating that is scratching off when the levers twist.

cause for concern?

I mount them so they can be spun by hand and so they move in case of a crash.

Someone posted this on mtbr: cut a popcan into a one inch strip. Glue to bars where stuff clamps - silver side out. Voila, now clamps can move without screwing up your bars.

Did it to mine. Works great.

Popcan? Shouldn't it be an empty PBR can for full dirtbag effect?
