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)

Stem for Syntace Stratos

Just bought an unbranded Syntace Stratos from Chucks Bike. Should be 26.0 cm.

I have a Ritchey Pro Stem and Ritchey WCS Classic Road Bar right now, and they're both listed at 25.8 cm. I was hoping that my old stem would work with my new bar, but if it doesn't, do you guys have any suggestions?

Hey,

I thought 25.8mm should work with 26mm. But then I would go with 26mm after all you are gonna pound on it right?

Are you new to the metric system? I seriously hope you are talking mm and not cm. 26.0cm bars would be massively thick (or exceptionally narrow).

I have made those specs work without any problems.
