1 1/8" integrated base bar on a 1" fork?

In my haste to get a deal on bonktown, I inadvertently purchased an 1 1/8 integrated base bar/stem to go on my 1" steerer tube. Are there sleeves or some other item that will allow me to use the bar on my fork or do I have a new eBay item to sell? Thanks in advance.

Yup, new ebay item. Good luck. Hope the deal was low enough to clear your
expenses and hassle. Even if some bizarro garage factory in Chungking did
make such an adapter it would raise the bar higher than you are likely to
find comfortable. There is no way to fit the oversize stem into the undersize
head tube.

Major bit of idiocy above, subsequent posters more to the point!!

I'm not sure what you guys are talking about. There are plenty of premade 1 1/8 shims that take em down to 1", unless the specific design of the stem/bar combo precludes such use.

Huh? Your stems fit into your head tube?
