    Hi

    My bike takes a 1" steerer tube. How much does this affect stiffness?
    Would running an oversize bar and stem combination pose any problems?
    Are stem shims as badly thought-of as seat post shims?

    Thanks for your time :)

    I've done it (OS bars with shim for 1 1/8"). No problems, plenty stiff.

    I have 3 bikes with stem shims. No problem at all. Shims come standard with many stems.
