    Nashbar Bullhorns in a Nitto Jaguar?

    I just bought a pair of Nashbar bullhorns and while I do have a 26.0 stem that I plan on using these with, I was wondering if they can fit in a Jag stem. Anyone?

    Thanks

    You can pry the stem open with a screwdriver and wiggle your bars in there. Lots of people are going to tell you that this will result in certain death, but we're talking about a .6 mm difference, so you'll be fine.

    I understand that the bullhorns are 26.0 and the jag is 25.4. I plan on sanding down a bit of the clamp area on the horns. What I was wondering is if the stem could fit past the folded corners.

    Don't do that. You think they make the tubing thicker than it needs to be? That'd be a waste of resources (and money) and a disservice to you. Just clamp it in there like bonechilling said. That technique should get you around the corners as well.

    buy a new stem. a deep drop stem with drop bullhorns isn't going to be comfortable anyway

    theres nothing special about a nitto jaguar that makes it harder to get bars through them than any other stem. he was probably doing it wrong
