Wilde tells us the Cardinal Crossbar is suited to any “cruiser, mountain or country bike”, though the clamp region does have a 22.2mm diameter that would necessitate the use of shims if pairing with the a 25.4mm, 26.0mm or 31.8mm clamp stem. Wilde highly recommend the use of a stem that has at least 4 bolts at the face plate, largely because the amount of leverage that can be wielded with such a high rise bar.
