|Can you use a Ritchey Pro or Comp stem with a Cinelli bar?|
|Make sure they are all 26.0 clamp diameter (most Cinelli) nm||Spunout|

|Older Cinelli bars used to have a clamp size that was just enough bigger that they wouldn't work with most other manufacturers' stems. I don't think that's quite so true anymore. Open face plate stems make cheating on clamp size a quite bit easier to do, but the idea of "squish" fitting a nice Cinelli handlebar doesn't sit well with me. If it was my bike, I'd get out the calipers and make sure that the handlebar and stem match.|

|The current WCS and PRO stems have lables on them that indicate NO 26.0 bars.
I think TTT and ITM bars are 25.8mm... you can find bars CHEAP on ebay.. I think I saw a TTT fogie bar about to go for $16 today.
