Cheap riser bars recommendation?

Can anybody recommend some cheap riser bars that are pretty narrow? I can chop them at the ends but looking for bars where the U shape is most narrow. Any recommendations would be appreciated.

I got these: https://www.benscycle.net/index.php?m...oducts_id=8899

A little more I guess, but I love them, enough sweep to be comfortable but doesn't look goofy.
