    His bars have a clamp diameter that is too big for his stem. He needs to go from 26.0 to 25.4, not 25.4 to 26.0.

    Scrod, please consider making a thread just for evilcryalotmore, where he can post all of his questions and "brilliant" threads.

    It seriously seems like you make at least 2 new threads a day.
