Per my post above, 31.75, 31.7, and 31.8 are all exactly the same thing. And they are all really 31.75.

Nope.

My Deda bars all measure 31.7 dead, yet my other bars from Cinelli & 3T, as well as the Enves in the shop I work for measure 31.8. Enve even advise against using Deda product with theirs for this specific reason.

Regarding ELITE X2 : 31.8 Road

Q – Will X2 work with 31.7 bars?
A – Yes, 31.8 and 31.7 both refer to 1.250 inch diameter. 1.250 inch converts to 31.75mm. Some people round up to 31.8, some round down to 31.7.
I suppose it's possible that ultimobici knows better than Thomson, but ...

As long as we're on a roll

The fact that 1 1/4" happens to be 31.75mm is irrelevant and not an indication of it just being a rounding issue. The predominant units of measurement in cycling are metric and have been for many a year.
Ever hear of 28.6, 31.7, or 34.9 diameter frame tubes? 1 1/8, 1 1/4, 1 3/8 inches, baby. How about 1 inch, 1 1/8 inch, 1 1/4 inch, 1 3/8 inch, 1 1/2 inches top and/or bottom steerer diameters? Oh, one last thing, how about 31.75, a.k.a, 31.7, a.k.a 31.8, a.k.a. 1 1/4 inch diameter stems?

I love your bike, and the stem looks nice, but for heavens sake get yourself a chrome matching bar that logo'd out DEDA looks like @$$ on an otherwise beautiful setup!

Was thinking exactly the same thing :wink: . All I have to decide now is whether I will get a polished handlebar or get to work and do the polishing of the centre section myself.

I already got the wooden rims replaced by polished H Plus Son Archetype rims. Does that count also? :mrgreen:
