I'm thinking of getting this stem (need a longer reach), but it's a 31.7mm (my bar is a 31.8mm). Anyway, will this be a problem? I can't imagine it would be, as a .1mm difference is pretty much close to nothing, but I just want to make sure before I order...

Thanks

There was a recent thread about this and the answer was that they are the same. Some companies round off the number to 31.7 and some round it to 31.8. Marketing strategies only.

Happy riding.

Yeah, I read that somewhere as well. I think that the size is 1.25 inches and that comes out to 31.75 mm, but that's too many figures, so round it off how you like.
