Bars - Bulge size?(4 posts)

Bars - Bulge size?Golden Graham
Mar 28, 2001 5:49 AM
I need a new stem, I see that there seem to be 2 different sizes 25.8 and 26.0mm for the diameter of the bar bulge.
My bars are 25.8 (ITM pro 225s) and the stem I want is 26.0(Profile).
Is this going to cause a problem or are these diffs so small that it doesn't matter.
(I am not a strong sprinter so getting the stiffest set up isn't a priority.)

First off, there are a lot more than two sizes; 25.4, 25.8, 26.0, 26.6, 31.7, 31.8. But the tolerences between a 25.8 and 26.0 are close enough that you can use them. You cannot go as far as a 25.4-26.0 combination.
