Re: Bent HH stem and clutch won't stay tight
Trying to straighten it couldn't hurt much. I say why not. As for your clutch, instead of using any sort of tape, I would just buy a locking clutch. I know gibraltar sells a nice one for around $11, and it 'hugs' the stand, rather than screws into it, so there's no slippage. That is, unless you're using a 6mm stand, in which, then I would recommend the tape.
