On a pair of aluminum Cinelli bars that I have, the clamp sleeve has begun to slip (on the bar, not the stem).

Does anyone have any ideas on how to resecure the sleeve to the bar?

I've been thinking glue but I don't know of a good glue to secure anodized aluminum pieces together. Another option might be drilling a VERY SMALL hole through the sleeve and into the bar, then screwing a tiny screrw through both with some loc-tite.

I don't know. Anyone have any suggestions? This is a very special pair of upright Cinelli bars that I'd rather not ditch.
