Hi I need a new stem for my Nomad
Thinking Diablous or thomson X4 - the (31.8 bar clamp models)

I like the idea of 31.8 stems as it keeps my options open for bar of 31.8 and 25.4sizes, but is it ok to use a spacer in there as I have Ea70 Monkeybars 25.4 on my bikes.

If spacers are widely available id like to got that route...

Thanks for your time

Done it for quite awhile. I've run a 25.4 Azonic double wall bar in a Hussefelt 31.8 stem for quite awhile with no problems. I made a set of spacers from an old section of cut-off alloy fork steerer, and it worked perfectly. Later I bought a set of spacers from Problem Solvers/QBP, and the darned things were identical to what I made...LOL! I wouldn't be afraid to use a set of spacers on a 31.8/25.4 setup, but maybe I'd stay away from a carbon bar in this application. Maybe just me, but I want everything to be perfect as originally manufactured if I'm using a carbon bar.
