Is it best to remove the concrete from the handle bars or is it OK to leave in over the cold winter months? (who remembers this?)

I appreciate quick advice as it is 27 degrees out right now. Please help I am stressing over this.

Thanks in advance
It is the best to remove it for winter, or remove the bars and store inside. In the cold the concrete will shrink, and slightly shrink the metal with it. Come summer the concrete will expand, putting the metal bars under internal pressure. The danger is that one day you'll be riding along and ... BOOM ... the bars explode on you. That is unless you used handlebar / crash bar specific concrete. I think you need to special order that though.

Harkon, Thanks so much. Sounds like you have first had experience and I will take your advice and knowledge. I feel so much better now I can't thank you enough.
I am not sure what kind of concrete was used so off they come for the winter.

Thanks for the coupon RBS. Now if only I could find my glass cutter so I can cut it out and use it.

I tried that with my flat screen and a knife. It went black before I could get it removed. I think it's a trick coupon! RBS playing his silly games again!

I was talking to an old gummer not long ago. He said the only thing he uses after November 1st through the entire holiday season is Pumpkin Seed Oil. It is readily available this time of year, the right color and better than Metamucil !! Yep. That's what he said. I swear.
