Recently the board software has been updated and there are some known bugs/failures:
- Avatars are currently not being displayed
- Tapatalk connection is currently broken

Those bugs will be fixed ASAP (next few days) as they are unfortunately more serious than expected.

If you find more errors please post it here: http://weightweenies.starbike.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=139062

Why would someone choose a 31.8mm handlebar/stem setup over a 25.4mm handlebar/stem setup? Stiffer? Reliability?

Rigidity seems to be the primary reason for the wider clamp.

I went to extralite's website, and they are saying a 25.4mm is stiffer

May want to take information from them with a grain of salt. You are getting information from a company that prioritizes weight over everything else.
