Thanks for the inspiration @ John, Diesel.  I just took these off ebay.  I have old style 26mm bars from a 1984 Dawes Galaxy.  Not sure why the description says "Standard" 26mm.  Is standard not 31.8mm these days?  Never owned a bike made after the 80s.

If they are too long I intend to cut them back.

Have just gotten home, broken out the calipers, and seen the error in my ways...

May soon be a pair up for sale. Let me know if interested.

Edit: may have found a solution

Have one of these waiting to be installed; but I do think a 'normal' quill stem is more attractive.

Black though.

Nice find. Black though indeed. But to be fair will match my new aero bars....

Well I have ordered some Cinelli Spinaci Light which weigh in at 190g.   They are new old stock (NOS) and were 34 euros delivered.   So worth a try out and bit cheaper than the modern options.

Do you think these mini-bars fit your image though, Phil?

This is what I'm planning. Deda Parabolica. I bought an extra set off ebay so that I could use 2 clamps on 1 set and put the pads just behind the bars.

It's a bit tight and compromised but works for me.

Have you been coping with this setup? I have ridden with my setup quite a bit. I do like it. However I have yet to cut the bars to brake lever length and fear they’ll be useless after. I do also miss the lost hand position on top of the bars. Saying that, I’ve removed them now and my body naturally wants to fall on them when riding. Quite a comfy luxury!

This works for me, have ridden up to 300km so far with this set up.

It is compromised, not where I'd like it to be but seems to be ok.

With my setup I can just use the tops still but don't often.

400 and 600 coming up so will see how it goes there!
