Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Nitto Riser Bar 26.0mm?

Any of you studs out there know of a Nitto riser bar that comes in a 26.0mm clamp size ... and where to get it? I have a Nitto Technomic Deluxe 26.0 that I wanted to pair with B201s, but I've only been able to find 25.4s so far... Any suggestions or reality checks helpful.

Nice mooseblend. That was fast. Seems as though others have answered the questions before - I guess I just wasn't searching for the right entries:

shimming stem from 25.4 mm to 26.0 mm?

26.0 risers - who makes em'?

Riser Bars with 26.0 mm clamp diameter...where?

Riser bars with 26.0 stem clamp diameter?

I only know of 25.4, that is all that Nitto offers me....so I guess there is no 26?

Go down to your local hardware store and get a nice piece of brass shim. You want something on the order of 0.01" thick.

I use a 3" sheet of foil and fold it down to the size of a shim. Make sure the the folds are creased tight though! This has worked for my 25.4mm-26.0 step up through sprints, skids and rain...

there's no reason to buy anything when a can ($0 presumably) works fine

again, just tighten them down it will be fine on 25.4 bars.
the only stem that has given me grief and would not clamp tight enough around a 25.4 bars was a salsa 26.0 stem.
and well of course 26.4 cinelli stems

Or you could just take the extra 5 seconds and do it right.

Sometimes it feels good to buck the cheap-ass approach to life.
