North Roads and inverse levers

Ladybiek finally saw the light and swapped to drop bars on her Soma. We're getting rid of the old cockpit, figured I'd post it here first but I won't be surprised if yinz don't want this crap.

We gots a set of the aluminium 25.4 NITTO north roads, and these SW8 dia-compe inverse levers:

(pictured are NOT the bars in question)

Make offer? These'd be good on a bar spencer or something like that, I guess.

What's the width on those bars? Might be interested in the bars but not the levers. (also do these run road levers or would hybrid/mtb shifters work?)

ladybiek would really, really prefer to sell them as a set. I don't know for sure if they take road levers, I would have to dig up the amazon link that she used to buy them because they come in 2 sizes, but I do know that we had to use the 23.8mm i.d. inverse levers, NOT the 22.2 ones.

If she doesn't get traction on selling them as a set I'll let you know.

What grip / bore dia do the levers work with?

23.8mm inverse levers is probably road bits rather than MTB. This describes my inverse levers and the old VO bars I had them stuck in.

These are the levers in question.

edit: well shit, looking at the numbers on that page, now I'm just as confused as y'all.

yeah, you need to use road diameter clamps and shit, unless: The bars are steel and have been bored out to work with TT brake levers (e.g. albatross bars).

Break out them calipers and measure the outside diameter.

I'm not really interested in these anymore so don't measure anything on my account

That's not a problem, they're not very comfortable anyway.
