Can I pair-up an Easton Carbon bar (31.8) with a Deda Newton stem (31.7) or is that .1mm going to cause catastrophic failure?

I have an EC90 (oversize) with a Deda magic. Not sure if the magic is 0.1mm different or not. Works great for the 2 months I've been using it. I doubt you'll have an issue; that tolerance seems insignificant IMHO.
no problem...C-40

The open-face stem design is quite forgiving when it comes to minor variations in diameter. 31.8 and 31.7mm nominal sized bars and stems can be mixed without a problem.

thanks guys...The bend of the Newton bars feel just too awkward for me so I'm going to go ahead and make the switch.
I'm using that exact combination.fallzboater

Works fine, no problems. I don't have a torque wrench, just tightened the bolts evenly by feel, and just past tight enough that I can't twist the bars in the stem by yanking on them.

I'm guessing the standard is really 1.25 inches. Try multiplying 1.25" by 25.4 mm/inch.
