    newbie handlebar question

    I want to put a new set of flat bars on my Rockhopper Comp - according to Specializes spec sheet, my current bars have a diameter of 38mm. Will I have to get a new stem along with new bars or do I just need to find flat bars that have the same diameter as my old? I was looking at the Raceface Next series but thay only come in 31.5 mm I believe. Any suggestions/help?

    Thank you!!

    Just look for a bar the same size as yours. Your stem will still be fine.
    The views expressed above are badly thought out and hastley typed. Any spelling or gramatical mistakes, are, their to annoy.

    Are you sure about that 38mm size ?

    There are generally two sizes in the MTB world

    25.4mm - the standard size in recent years

    31.8mm - The 'new' oversized bars

    It looks like from specialized web site that your riser bars have a 38mm rise in them and they do not specify a clamp diameter. Usually, when they do not specify a diameter it is 25.4mm, but make sure you check before you buy a new bar.

    I'm sorry. You're correct. 38mm rise on them with a 9 degree sweep.
