Will this stem fit my bike?

Hello all. I need to add some length and rise to the reach on my 2003 Jamis Nova. It's stock and has a Ritchey stem and handlebar. I'm looking at this stem but am concerned about the 25.4 clamp diameter. Do I need 26 instead, or am I confused? I'm new to working on my bike and don't have access to it to measure anything right now. Will this stem work for me as far as it actually fitting on my bike? I hope so, because it's a smokin deal and appears to be decent quality. Thanks!

Most MTB handlebars are 25.4mm dia. Road bikes are 26mm.

The clamp you are thinking about will fit MTB handlebars that are 25.4mm in dia. with a 1 1/8" dia. headset/steerer tube. It will not clamp to a 26mm handlebar - at least not properly or sufficiently.
