Anyone any ideas?

I have a Mavic stem which is 26,0 according to velobase, and an ITM Super Italia bar from the 90s, which also measures up at 26,0.

But bar will not sit tight in stem. Is the info on Velobase incorrect?

Thanks Tel.

Thing is, I'd already tried the stem on some Cinelli bars and not got it to fit, which is why I didn't question the measurement from Velobase.

How easy did yours go on?

Pretty easy. I tried a pair of 26.0mm but it wouldn't tighten up. Perhaps yours just needs opening up again with a screw driver or something....
