I'm sorry if this is common knowledge to you guys, but I'm new to this forum and just getting back into road cycling after a couple of years of only MTB. Since I built my last road bike the new "oversized" format of stems and bars have came out, and now I'm building up another bike and am trying to decide which route to take. What are the pros and cons of both systems? One thing I've noticed so far is that the 31.8 bars are more expensive and harder to come by it seems. Is that just because they are new, or are they not being embraced by the industry and destined to die off? Am I to assume that the 31.8 bar/stem combo is going to be stiffer/more sound due to larger clamp diameter than the 26.0 clamp? Thanks a lot for the help!
