I built my bike not knowing what the normal stem/bar size is for MTBs, and now someone wants to buy
my stem, but I don't have calipers (and I'm not on campus where the stem/bar is).

What's the most common size of MTB bar? I'm 90% sure I don't have the oversize 1 1/8"... is 25.4mm
(1inch) the norm?

TIA!

Yes, 25.4 is normal for the handlebar.

Wrap a paper around the part and mark off the circumference. Take it off and lay it flat. Measure
the circumference with a ruler and divide by pi -

Yes... I was going to do that before I left my dorm room and came home for spring break But it's
not in my current possession and I can't measure it, and I have to give the ebay guy an answer.
