Next, about 7/8" from the end, drill a 3/16" hole in the post. This is best done with a drill press, but you can do it if you're careful with a hand drill, center punching it to keep the bit in place. This length will leave enough room on the post to fit a Twenty clamp, if you have one or can obtain one. I plan to do this someday, but for now I'm using a clamp left over from a recumbent project.

Yeah, I almost took a fall the other night, forgetting that I hadn't tighened the handlebar clamp. Well if I had, it would have been my own darned fault!

Like the idea of another(!) Raleigh clamp. "Tighten securely" always amuses me. In the age of over-protection and litigation I doubt you'd get away with such a 'dangerous' device now, relying entirely on personal responsibility!
