Quill + Ergo Bars

I bought some ergo bars for my bike (Specialized 1st gen (?) carbon tubes w/lugs), and I have 1" threaded quill... and I cant get the suckers in.

I want to use the new bars, so my options as I see them are:

1. Find the ellusive open-face quill

2. Find the ellusive threaded-to-threadless adaptor and get a threadless stem

Does anyone know where I can find said quill? Threadless stem would look terrible imo (I hate when the stem is larger diameter than the headset) and I want to keep the forks, they kind of match the bike

The problem is bar size! Your ergo bars are probably 26mm at the mount. Your 1" threaded quill is probably for 25.4mm mount bars. Your options as you see them are correct. You could also buy a stem for the much (31.8mm?) larger bars & use shims. Open face quills aren't that rare.
