Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

This is bad info. OS stems which are 31.8 will work just fine with Deda 31.7 bars. They are in fact the same size, one rounded up, the other rounded down.

If thick ness of the shim doesn't matter then..how will shim fill in the gaps? I ain't being a dick or nothing just that ur logic does not flow. Anyways have a good day.

Oh yer: Negative...good good as long as u have a stem for the right bar..all good.

well your defn of shim is wrong or incomplete.
i also said if it is correct shape and diameter.

well here you go guys. i'd rough both sides of the shim up with some sandpaper.
and if the shim is too wide. make some accurate marks and get the file out.

soo logically wrong!!!

if u try to fit a 27.2 seatpost into a 30mm seat-tube hence the thickness of the shim will be (30 - 27.2)/2 = woteva, after u find the thickness then u bend the piece of metal in desirer shape that could wrap around the 27.2mm seatpost.
Simple maths...THEREFORE thickness does matter.

go back reread

thickness as in how thick the space that you are trying to fill doesn't matter...as long as the shim is the appropriate size or thickness and shape to fit said space...understand now.

or you could fit a 25.4 bar into a 31.8 stem as long as the shim fits
or
you could fit a 25.4 bar into a 26 stem as long as the shim is the appropriate size and shape and yes thickness

thats what he meant
