    You'll only need shims if they're too big, if you see what I mean. Some tri bars eg Profile come in a large clamp size to fit 'oversize' bars, but have plastic inserts to fit normal bars.

    If the bars fit, clamp 'em straight on.

    they are profile design century bars trying to fit them on the standard bars that came on my boardman. the tribars are a few years old looking at them the diameter of the clamps just seems too small . i will try and post pics in the moring,
