I recently purcahsed a set of bullhorn bars for my KHS Flite 100 fixed gear. I got a good deal on them online, but didn't think of one thing...
My steer tube is 1" and the bars are 31.8mm. I'm having a hard time finding a stem that would fit those dimensions.
I know that they make reducing shims, but I don't know if they are good or not. Any ideas?
Also, any idea if anyone makes a 1" to 31.8mm stem?
Any help is appreciated.
The shims for 1" steerers work fine. Just make sure the steerer and shim are degreased so nothing slips around and torque it all to spec.
I don't think a shim is going to help in this situation.

Not a shim for the bars. A shim for the fork steer tube so that you can use a 1-1/8" stem on a 1" fork. I have one on my bike and it works fine. I have never seen a 1" oversize (31.8) stem.

Just wanted to make sure that it was a good solution. Luckily they're only a couple of bucks.
