    Nitto Rb-018 + cross lever size question....

    want to put the lever before the clamp area.

    clamp area is 26mm...not sure what the bar diameter is.

    get a 26mm and shim or will the 24mm lever fit?

    24 will fit. However, if you put a 26mm on the bulge next to your stem, you won't lose as much of the top hand position on that side.

    ideally that's what i wanted to do, but i have a thompson x4 stem and it interferes with the lever.

    tested it with a paul cross lever, and it would not work.

    maybe it will work with a tektro or cane creek???

    I can see how an X4 would be too wide and not allow enough clearance for the barrel adjuster on the lever. A 24mm clamp lever will fit where the bars taper down.
