and if you're worried about the old schoolness of 31.8 bars, you might like to know they have been more or less standard in the bike trials world since the mid 90s on Montys and Megamos. They even used to come in tasteful purple!

Larger diameter near the stem does give them a mechanical advantage too - higher torque there than at the controls.
