Subject: [CR]WTB: 25mm flat bars

Hello,

I want to have flat/upright bars on my Jean Brun 5speed. I have a Pivo faux lugged stem, with a 5cm extension.

The clamp diameter appears to be a french 25mm. My 25.4mm flat bars won't go in without attempting to stretch it. I believe stretching is the suspected cause of most 'death stem' failures. Therefore I'd like to buy a flat or upright 25mm handlebar.

Who has one? Where might I go to buy one? What should I look for on Ebay?
