bsdc said:The larger diameter is suppose to make the bar stiffer and help the stem clamp firmer. Neither of these have been a problem for me. I find the larger diameter interferes with computer and heart rate monitor mounts, so I prefer the smaller diameter bars.
I just bought a Cateye wireless computer and it allows you to mount the unit on the stem. The mounting bracket has holes that allows zip ties around the stem. It's a very clean set up.................
