    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?

    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.
    This is Africa, 1943. War spits out its violence overhead and the sandy graveyard swallows it up. Her name is King Nine, B-25, medium bomber, Twelfth Air Force. On a hot, still morning she took off from Tunisia to bomb the southern tip of Italy. An errant piece of flak tore a hole in a wing tank and, like a wounded bird, this is where she landed, not to return on this day, or any other day.

    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...

    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.
