Cinelli handlebar clamp sizes
I have a an older (mid '70s?) Cinelli handlebar that I am unsure of the clamp diameter. My guess would be that it is 26.4, but I have measured it differently.
With a set of digital calipers, the reinforced portion of the bar is 26.13mm on the non-knurled part (outside of where the stem clamps) and is 26.20mm on the knurled section where the stem clamps.
Does anybody know if these numbers match up with the 26.4 mm Cinelli standard? Or is theree some 26.2 mm standard that I haven't heard about?
It just seems odd to me because I measured a 26.0 mm bar at 26.00 mm.
