Singlespeed & Fixed Gear - 26mm clamp bars to 31.8?
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
I began checking into switching out the handle bars on my bike for something a bit more comfortable. I found that the clamp is 31.8 and pretty much all the bars I'm finding are in the 26mm range. Are there any methods of converting a 26 to a 31.8 or are there any bars similar to the RB-021 or RB-018's for a 31.8 clamp?
Thanks in advance.

nitto sells shims to get 26.0mm bars into a 31.8mm stem.
