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 RB-018 bullhorns - diameter outside of clamp area?

Does anyone know the diamater of Nitto RB-018 bullhorns outside of the clamp area? Trying to figure out if my cross lever with a 25.4mm clamp will work with these.

Beer can shim works fine for <2-3 mm difference. Preferably Pabst.

Ill just sneak in an ot now that op's question is answered: Is there a "correct" way to mount crosstops on nitto drop bars? For whatever reason, are you supposed to put them on the raised ~26mm central thing, or off to the sides on the 24mm area, or what?

Off to the side is how I did it (on my RB021)

Cool, thanks MIN. I'll do it that way too. Itd be a shame to cover up that nice engraving.
