    diety handlebars

    Im looking at picking up either the 31.8 or 25.4 handlebars from diety. the 31.8 are oversized while the 25.4 are standard. i plan on getting a new stem, but whats the major difference gunna be between the sizes?

    31.8 is stronger and stiffer. depending on what kind of riding ur doing is gonna determin what u want. not to mention 31.8 is becoming more available in a lot more types of stems.

    I prefer a 25.4 on a hardtails. Maybe, because it does flex more.

    I like the feel of the thirties from them. Better sweep and rise IMO. Try those and cut em down. They are thirtyoneeights.
