I'm not using the stock bars, but I'm running a 25.4 bar in a 26.0 stem. I made a shim from an aluminum can.

Because they like the height of the handlebars.

Does anyone know if the moustache bars below will fit in the stock stem that comes on the Mercier Kilo TT? Thanks for the help in advance.

the post is 26.8, but the clamp is 30.0, as adriano said.

i still haven't scored an inexpensive black 30.0 seatpost clamp, no. i haven't yet spraypainted it, due to the paint seemingly adding a little bit of thickness (like when i painted the faceplate on my stem), but I did use a sharpie on it, which isn't holding up very well at all to wear, naturally. i guess it's not the end of the world though, it's totally functional as silver (sorry this is another image repost):

im going to go ahead and spray. i hadnt thought about the thickness the paint added so i suppose ill tape off the inside to maintain the inner diameter.

Sharpie not holding up? Use an industrial sharpie they're designed to hold up to steam, acid, etc... I'm pretty sure it'd handle everyday riding...

i mean, its not a big deal, its a seatpost clamp. i just wanted something legit cause i had to rig a quick release lamp with another bolt at the lbs because they didnt have anything but a 30.0 QR in stock. so its big and ugly. when i got my frame it didnt have a clamp

do those turn out as purple/brown as regular sharpies? it surely would be faster than the spray especially depending on the preparation required to paint (sand? primer?).

I never wrote on black with them so I never noticed if they are purplish or brownish... I think they seemed a bit more black than normal sharpies... at least on metal they turned out that way...
