Are Stems Universal ?
I have some Masi stem and drops , but the stem is 1" I think . Are stem's flexible to fit 1 1/8" ? I don't have a newer fork right now so I haven't had the time to test fit it on . Anybody know If I'll need a new stem ?
EDIT: It's a threadless stem if it makes a difference .

most are 1 1/8 though. if yours is a 1" don't put it on a 1 1/8, if you stretch it it will break.
Fork tube is 1 1/8"? I think you're out of luck if that's the case.
Pretty much what people are trying to say is that no, a 1" stem can't fit onto the 1 1/8" steerer.
You can get a 1 1/8" stem to fit on a 1" steerer with a shim.
(only a bigger stem can mayb fit onto a smaller fork, not the other way around.
