I just had a new Truvativ Hussefelt delivered and tossed it onto my bike. I have 31.8mm handlebars, and the stem is 31.8 (at least according to the packaging and the print on the side - see photos). However, after tightening down the bolts, there is a significant gap (about 3mm or 1/8 inch) both top and bottom. Is this normal for this stem? As far as I know it only comes in 31.8 anyway. Also, the radius of curvature seems to match the handlebars, it's just that there's not enough circumference to join the two halves. I previously had a 31.8mm Race Face stem installed with no problems.
I'm confused... help! I haven't seen a stem with such a large gap before.
