|MTB handlebar on road stem?||Red|
Mar 21, 2001 10:10 AM
My quest goes on. Now I'm planning out the stem needs for this hybrid concotcion i'm looking at.
Are road handlebars the same diameter as the average MTB bar? Would I need to work out a MTB stem to use a mtb bar, or will a road stem work?
I know there will always be exceptions to the rule, but generally speaking....?

|road bike stems use a 26.0mm clamp, while mtb handlebars are 25.4mm, you may be able to find a shim to fit this (although I don't know if they are available at 0.6mm), if not you should stick with a mtb stem. |
Peace and Light,

|check out supergo and places like that for a 1" threadless MTB stem, should fit, just hafta find a short one as MTB stems seem to be longer than Road bike stems.

|Hey, you don't even need a shim if the mtb bar is too small, just wrap duct tape around the center of the bar until the diameter is big enough to fit in the stem.|| |
