In addition to my shifting woes while sprinting, I also have an annoying issue on the bars.  The bar clamp on my Sram Force 10 levers has a significant gap along the top edge and the bars; like a couple or three mm's.  It does not sit flush.  Thus, right at the edge of the brake hood, it drops off down to the bar.  I have jerry rigged it thus far, and was hoping maybe it was just a strange shape to my bars.  I just swapped out my bars with the PRO 7S, and its the same.  This gap seems so significant that I would actually think Sram would have created a plug to fit in place to smooth the transition to the bar.  Other than stacking a couple small pieces of bar tape and double wrapping the bar at that point, has anyone successfully dealt with this?  Not a huge issue, but it forces hand positions that are not natural, as the ledge digs into the heel of my hands in a normal position.

O.k. I'm lazy. Do a Google search on "setting up Sram force". Bike Radar has some tips that should be helpful.
