Hey does anyone know the best way to bend njs bars? At first I thought it was for the track but then i realized it was just bent slightly.
Second, suggestions for bar tape or grips for njs drops?

Maybe posting a picture of the bars would be helpful.

NEVER bend any kind of aluminum component, frame, etc. If the bars are bent just replace them. Stick it out till you get a new pair.
