No it won't. The stem you show has a 31.8 mm diameter handlebar clamp and the bike has a 26.0 mm handlebar center diameter. You need a 26.0 stem or 31.8 mm handlebars.

Or one of these, but it is a pretty ghetto solution. Best to get a new stem that matches your handlebar diameter - 26.0mm

Those shims will be 2.9 mm thick to use a 26.0 mm bar. That's pretty ghetto and likely to be creaky.

Isnt better just get the stem that works with that handlebar and forget the one u picked? 3t has the 4xl that comes with a 26 mm clamp in it. And is not expensive.
