Keep them over sized bars!!!!

I think you may have something there. I forgot about this.
Cut the stem clamp off to use as the tube and simply fit an head stem with a shim.
Simples!!!

Ps if you are going for lor profile bars you probably want to cut the stem down anyway. You might find that you are happy with the folding without a qr stem especally as you are using levers which will give a more compact fold.
Just fit a QR (s) on the stem to get a compact fold. Jobs a good one. Except. QR and moving a carbon bar safe in llong run?
