24.0 clamp on 23.8 bar?
I plan on purchasing the Soma Urban Pursuit hand bars and saw that the bar diameter is 23.8 mm and I'm having trouble finding cross top levers for 23.8. Will a 24.0mm cross lever fit?
Here's the handlebar:
you are talking about 2/10 of a millimeter... thats like a hair in thickness dude... learn metric system
It should fit just fine.
Aaaaah haha well this is embarassing. I was thinking in centimeters...and i have no idea why be cause a 23.8 cm diameter bar would be ridiculous ridiculous!

23.8mm is the standard width for road handlebars. I can [almost] guarantee those cross levers are really 23.8mm, but they decided to round up the number, which only confuses folks.

24.0 and 23.8 are commonly used to describe the same handlebar diameter, for where the shifters and brake levers fit. Interruptor levers are available for 23.8/24.0. Sometimes 26.0 and 31.8 levers can be used with a shim to 24.0. The Salsa levers are like that. Tektro makes interruptor levers in all 3 sizes.
Right. The 24.0 mm clamps are intended to be installed away from the center bulge of the bars. The 26.0 mm and 31.8 mm clamps are installed immediately adjacent to the stem and on the bar center bulge for bars with stem clamps of the same diameter.
