Fuji Feather Bullhorns

Looking to slap some bullhorns on my fuji feather but I can find the diameter of the handlebars. Anyone know? Possibly any recommendations?

How much leeway can you usually get with size? (Like +/- 5mm, etc). I wouldnt be against a new stem but the stock one suits me just fine.

I did find these. http://www.niagaracycle.com/categori...bar-40cm-black

I've mixed 25.4 and 26.0 and sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. What you linked is 25.4 so it would fit perfectly.

I use the fyxation bullhorn. I like them, although I think a bar with a wider diameter might be more comfortable. The rodeo pursuit has a drop whereas the rodeo bullhorn is straight across.

I dont believe they have predrilled holes, but Im sure Euthyphro will let you know. I went with the prusuits, I like the look of the drop and from riding my track drops I feel Ill like the drop while riding.

As far as thin bars, they're the same diameter as my stock which I don't mind.

I tried the Fyxation bullhorns and found that the actual horn part? that part that sticks out forward, was just too long on those bars. Gave them to a friend to use. It is a nice affordable bar but they were just too long if that makes sense.

I did find these. Fyxation Rodeo Pursuit Bullhorn Bar 40cm Black
Zero.

Get some electronic calipers from Home Depot. They're dirt cheap.

I don't run my cables internally. They are not predrilled.

Edit: I also find them a bit long. I don't mind it, though.
