1" Rox risers/ 7/8" clamps and bars.

I scoured the forum for info on pivoting Rox risers and decided to pull the trigger. I ordered 2' rise 1" clamp (the only bar diameter they offer) and got them today and was unpleasently surprised to find out the stock bars and clamps are 7/8'. I guess I should have measured the bars, but I can't recall seeing anything on here about them not fitting. Anybody else have this problem? Anybody have a solution other than sending them back?

They do make 7/8" risors. Pretty sure you need to send them back

They also make a model with shims to 7/8 so you can run a fat bar on a 7/8 bike. You might be able to uy or make the shims.

Just contact them, then return the ones you got in exchange for the 7/8" ones. (IF the 1" ones you bought are 1" on BOTH ends, you will NOT get them to fit without using a metal lathe!)
