Cyrano R1 Stem for Gravel

I am thinking of trying out a Cyrano R1 stem on my gravel bike (Salsa Fargo) - thinking of going to / trying the 20deg angle.

Does anyone happen to know if the steerer tube dimension is 1 1/8" (clamp size is fine) - not having an actual road bike don't know if they are different diameters.

Would be interested in general impressions / reviews as well.

Thanks

The steerer tube clamp on that stem appears to be 1 1/8", which is pretty much every modern treadless steerer tube.

Okay Great! Thanks. I'm new to road and gravel and have found that the technology has changed so much. I just wanted to be sure before I ordered the stem.

Just looked at bike24.de, and it is definitely 1 1/8", which is unsurprising, since almost all modern threadless steerers are 1 1/8", or the bike is offered with a shim to make it 1 1/8" (like my Diverge).
