    1 inch (25.4mm) wide stems?

    so i need to replace the stem on my rei drt 1.1, i cracked it on a jump.
    i'm looking for something on the cheaper side on amazon, but i can't find anything smaller than 28.6mm or 32mm.
    thanks!

    edit: the steerer tube diameter not bars!

    I really doubt you have a 1" steer tube, it's 1-1/8". I think the mms you are quoting are the clamp for the bar, not the steer tube.
    This post is a natural product. Variances in spelling & grammar should be appreciated as part of its character & beauty.

    Don't go too cheap with stems on Amazon... they crack...

    If you've already broken an OEM stem on a jump, you need something BETTER quality than OEM.

    Or you're going to break it again.

    And yeah, that bike needs something for a 1 1/8" steerer.

    Further, what sort of jump were you riding when you broke the stem? This bike isn't built for getting much air. It's just an entry level hardtail.

    it wasn't an OEM stem, it'd been a friends carbon stem that he gave me for my birthday, the way i cracked it is from doing a jump that was new, and the landing wasn't groomed, jumped, up,up up... then crack when i hit nose heavy on the ground, had suspension at max resistance so it didn't do much.

    1" steer tubes disappeared around the time suspension forks appeared. You need a stem for a tapered fork and a 31.8 handlebar. Super common.

    Props for sending it on a beginner bike.
