35mm brake levers clamp?

I have Deda Elementi handlebar which is 35 mm at the top part, I want to install a brake at the top part of the handlebar. Anyone know if there is a brake lever that can be clamped on the 35 mm handlebar? Thanks

There are none. There isn't even a huge choice for 31.8 but they do exist. I used to use the Ridea CNC lever which is just about the nicest money can buy. Eventually I ditched that style of lever altogether and now happy using Sram S900. The extra hand positions are welcome too on longer rides.
If I were you I'd just ditch the Deda and get regular sized bars and stem.

Paul all day anodized purple sooooo sexy or hand polished just so smoove. However the Rideas look nice but don't work if you want to have drop bar levers installed as well.
I agree on just replacing the bars. 35mm bars are silly just in general. 31.8 is fine and there are plenty of excellent options and I am sure plenty of people who would buy the Deda stuff thinking it is better because stiff and stuff.

Correct, there is no 35mm cross levers for bicycles that I have ever seen or heard of. My response was more to the nicest money can buy comment.
