25mm track bars?
hey all, i have a 25mm stem i really want to use. the trick is finding bars that will fit. do any brands still make track bars in this size? or should i just keep looking for used ones on ebay?
thanks, tobin

Soma makes 25.4 track bars. Might be able to get em in. It's only .4mm after all...

Almost all Nitto bars are 25.4 as well. MTB standard used to be 25.4. There are a LOT of bars in 25.4! There are essentially two options...spread the head out and use 25.4 stuff or have a machine shop remove a tiny bit of metal from the clamping area of the stem. .4mm can be done BY HAND with emery cloth, sandpaper or a file.

i'll go ahead and use a 25.4 then.

I did this as well. Just grease the bars lightly & use a screwdriver to gently pry the stem open to slide them in to minimize scratching.
