I'm feeble, weak, and get cold hands riding to work. I bought some cheapo heated grips but theyre crap. I used to have some Polly heaters inside the bars of and old XB9 I used to have (installed when I bought it), and they were brilliant; so I want to buy some more.

Unfortunately they don't fit into the standard 14mm inner diameter of most aluminium bars, including the ones on my CR. My old XB9 had steel bars similar to these:

Soo... does anybody know of any other suitable bars? Either steel, or some abnormally thin-walled aluminium bars.

The spec would be as follows...
    1 1/8" clamp & 7/8" ends
    ~700mm wide
    ~50mm rise
    ~75mm rake
    135mm+ clamping area
    200mm+ control area each side
    I presume these are also dimpled for controls, but any bar can be drilled anyway

A problem with some MX bars is that they are 800mm wide, and when cut down won't leave enough control area.

1" bars with shims to make them 1 1/8" would also suffice I suppose...
