|I "ASSume" 31.7 - 31.8 bars are the same?||K-Man|

|I want to get a longer stem on my new ride and have been coming across some stems that say for 31.7 and others that are for 31.8 bars. I assume that either of these stems would work on my oversized 31.8 Bar? Just want to make certain before I do anything stupid.

|OS bars are actually 1.25 inches or 31.75mm. Some companies round up the .05 and some round down.|

|Quality and the various catalogs seem pretty definite on the slight, but real size difference. I always thought it was a scam to keep you from mixing and matching stems. Not an area I would want to be wrong on.
Best to stick with a similar standard.
