Stupid question

But how do I know what size my stem is?

Cheers

    option 1 - measure it from c-c
    option 2 - look closely at it - it might be written on it.

    Will a 31.7 stem fit 31.8 oversized bars?

    You're talking about 0.1mm so I'd say so.
  • Oversized handlebars are actually 31.75mm (1.25") in diameter. Most companies choose to round up the number but some choose to round down. Go figure!

    ADMINS

    Is there a bug/hack/malware in your forum?

    There are new accounts posting weird stuff.

    Looks phishy...
    When a cyclist has a disagreement with a car; it's not who's right, it's who's left.
