I’m looking at getting Deda Newton bars. The Dedas have a 31.7 clamp size. I currently have a Bobtrager Race Lite stem that has a 31.8 clamp size. Will the tenth of mm difference cause a problem? I can't imagine it would, but you never know.

The way I've heard it explained is that Deda rounds the decimal up and the others round it down, but the spec is the same (e.g. 1.25 inches = 31.75 mm).
