    26mm clamp bars to 31.8?

    I began checking into switching out the handle bars on my bike for something a bit more comfortable. I found that the clamp is 31.8 and pretty much all the bars I'm finding are in the 26mm range. Are there any methods of converting a 26 to a 31.8 or are there any bars similar to the RB-021 or RB-018's for a 31.8 clamp?

    Thanks in advance.

    nitto sells shims to get 26.0mm bars into a 31.8mm stem.
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)
