Got some 25.4mm clamp bars to fit to a stem with a clamp of 26mm. Does anyone have a shim spare?

If you don't have any luck finding one try the coke can trick, or drinks can of your choice of course. I've used a Tango shim on the 25.4/26 combination in the past with no problems at all.

0.6mm to take up..... therefore a 0.3mm shim..... in steel this is usually made by Gillette.....Be very careful when it comes to servicing....

In all fairness.

It's the best a man can get.
