false. a 26mm thomson is a 25.4 with a 26mm front plate. You should be able to get one through your lbs for about 10 bucks.

yeah i don't know how good/bad the turbo will be. ive heard nothing but good things about them tho, especially the 80s ones. worse comes to worse i can just flip it for more since i got a pretty good price for it.

It the same thing as putting a set of 26mm bars into a 25.4 stem. It fits but you can't screw it all the way down. With the face plate, you can screw it all the way down. Its kindof pointless unless you're just anal about how it looks.

oh nvm then. that's stupid. why not just get the 25.4 and risk cracking the faceplate (it has happened before) or just get a 26.0 in another brand? there are some pretty nice non-thomson stems out there (cinelli, 3t, etc)

if you don't want to buy a new faceplate, get a deda, etc. However, it is 10 bucks and I doubt you can break the faceplate.

it's possible to crack the faceplate, and it has happened before. however, i don't see the point of buying a new faceplate if it still won't perfectly fit 26.0 bars; why not just use the 25.4 faceplate?


oh and that video sucks

Get a new stem, sell the old stem. Thomsons sell easily.
