Will they fit in a single bolted steel stem without removable face plate?

Depends a lot on the stem! If you do the coin trick from the back of the stem you'll probably get away with it. I've managed even to get drops in that way.

Certainly it's impossible with two-bolt Syncros stems...I've tried!

Thanks! They're to fit in a Salsa steel stem, so there's a bit of wiggle room.

The dodgy bit I found is the last bend to get to the centre- the bar seems to be getting fatter there.

Hopefully you are trying it with silver ones and don't have to worry about any fine scratches. :wink:
