Any real harm putting a 31.8mm on a 32.0mm frame? Obviously it is physically possible to do. Frame is aluminium.

Thoughts?

Should be no problem per se, although Lord only knows what the correct torque would be.

It'll just be the paint thickness won't it?

If you fancy sanding a bit of it away i recommend you file/sand the clamp and not the tube.

probably my current favoured plan. Not that its a big issue. I have a q/r @32.0mm on the Kona PHH, just wanted to add a bit more nip to shop security. and 32.0m options appear to be limited.
