I have a 31.8 mm FSA (OS 115) stem and was thinking of putting a 31.7 mm Deda bar in it. Since the face plate is totally independant, I find it hard to believe it won't accomodate a tenth of a millimeter difference. Anyone ever tried this?
If it won't work, anyone have a favorite 31.8mm traditional (non-ergo) bar they recommend, especially for use with Ergopower levers?
'''96 Litespeed Catalyst, '05 Litespeed Firenze, '06 Litespeed Tuscany, '12 Surly Pacer, All are 3x8,9 or 10. It is hilly around here!
Absolutely the same thing. The different numbers are the result of converting the English measurement of 1-1/4" to metric. The equivalent is 31.75 mm so most manufacturers round up to 31.8 mm and Deda rounds down to 31.7 mm. They are identical in diameter.
