You could try to put the controles on the wrong way to check if its the clamps of your controles that is to tight or its the diam. of the handle bars.
Mine are not the fat ones, they are the same diameter throughout which is great since they fit the bar backs and clamps I have on the bike now. They measure 22 mm with the caliper so everything should fit. I am just a bit nervous about forcing the controls on. The model I have is MA001.
