need a 31.6 mm bullhorn bar...why are they so hard to find?!

building up my vigorelli and I've chosen the Cinelli pista stem which is 31.6 mm
the problem is
there are no freaking bullhorns in this size. It seems like nitto is all 26mm.

If need be, ill order a different stem .... any suggestions?

Did a very unexstensive search on ebay which turned up nothing which means you're probably not going to find anything. Maybe new stem is the best way to go.

You sure it's not 31.8mm...? Every Cinelli Pista stem I've seen has been.

I was looking for the same thing, and I found these. Pretty cheap, if you only want to spend around $30.

you'll be happy you chose to stick with the cinelli pista stem.

Profile Design Airwing OS is a less expensive alternative to Cobra Wing. $40 and reasonably stiff.
