Is this NOT a good idea? It's only .2mm! The bar is a Easton Carbon and the stem is the new ITM Magnesium or Millenium.

Any thoughts are appreciated.

but i do run a 26.0 bar with a 25.4 stem off my
mountain bike. i have been running this setup for
over a year now.
It's not a problem;TJeanloz

The .2mm is close enough that it won't be a problem. The millenium/easton bar is exactly the set-up that I run. Anything more than that, and I'd begin to worry.

It'll be fine. I had the same question for Gary (GVHBikes) who built my bike last year. He said not to worry. He does it quite often.
