Once used once or twice this will ease up. Zipper Lubricant commonly used on Life Jackets and wetsuits is a good ongoing lubricant also.
Occasionally my Handlebar Cradle slips.
If you have a narrow handlebar tube (Often found on Jones Bars) we can supply shorter straps. Alternatively due to tapered or smooth handlebars try this, find an old bike tube, cut approx. 2 x 130mm lengths, long enough so tube will wrap your handlebar with a slight overlap. Fasten straps around the tube/handlebars and tighten.
