I've tried drilling & pinning (one pin 1/8" dia) through the sleeve and bar, but the aluminum (non-heat-treated Cinelli bars) is so soft that the slippage continued, while the pin just gouged a slot through the bar and the sleeve.

If you try glue or epoxy, remember that under load it could shear (break loose) at any time.
