    Do the standard aero bar diameters fit on standard mtb flat bars? Thanks.

    I have an urban mtb that I only ride on the road with very thin tires. Looking for a bit of aero / comfort.

    Unless the MTB bars are oversized they will fit. And even if they are you can get oversized clamps. Knock yourself out.

    Ever since I was dropped in a mixed road/XC race three years ago by a guy with aero bars on a MTB I have ceased criticism of this setup. I'd still never do it, but I'm not dissin these days.
