Handlebar Shims

$10.00

Color+ Shim From/To + Length

Oh shims. So denigrate. So misunderstood. The woeful life of an underrated bike bit.

Here’s the stem shim low down. They work fine, if you use ‘em right.

Do:

Use them with 2 or 4 bolt stems

Use them with steel or aluminum handlebars

Use a shim that is wider than your stem clamp

Do torque your stem bolts properly

Don’t:

Stack shims. IE don’t use a 31.8 to 25.4 shim and then a 25.4 shim to a 22.2 shim on the same stem. That's a recipe for failure.

Use 4 piece shims.

Use a shim with Bosco bars

We stock 31.8 to 25.4 + 26mm silver and black shims from problem solvers and 26mm to 25.4 steel shims from Nitto.

You can ride these off road, if you follow our do’s and don’ts.
