    Will a 26mm crosstop brake lever fit on 26.4mm handlebar?

    hi. my bike has an old cinelli drop handlebar that is 26.4mm in diameter. i am looking at a crosstop brake lever that is 26mm and was wondering if anyone has tried this before. will it fit? obviously, we are talking about 0.4mm here, which is a small difference. nonetheless, i'd prefer to see if it would work, considering there aren't any levers that are 26.4.

    thanks for the input.

    You shouldn't have any trouble. If you do, send me the lever and I'll make a video of myself eating it.
