Oversize bars w/ fat clamp diam. that tapers out to narrower tops, please see diagram

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Oversize bars w/ fat clamp diam. that tapers out to narrower tops, please see diagram

Hi, I recently bought a TTT 4G-XL handlebar. It has a 31.8mm clamp diameter, but the width tapers out to a narrower diameter on the tops and drops. I want to fit inline levers, but not close to the stem but rather spread apart near the middle of the tops.

I don't have calipers, and I guess I should just use a ruler, but I'm wondering if anyone happens to know what size inline/cross/interrupter lever clamp might work for the area outside the wide area where the stem clamps.

thanks

The interrupter I installed for my sister's bike (Forte from Performance) included shims so they worked both on the Larger oversized section as well as the smaller section after the taper. I used to have a set of Tektro interrupters that only worked with the narrow section that was installed on an oversized bar similar in description to yours. I don't think you'll have a problem finding one that fits the narrow section. Finding one that fit the larger section would be more difficult.

it's around 24mm for where the bar is tapered down.
you can just get a 26mm or 31.8mm cross top and use a shim on it too.
