Can anyone tell me what the advantage is of having oversized (31.8) handlebars instead of the traditional size?

When I ride on the top of the bar, I tend to grab very close to the stem and I like how the bulge of the o/s bars feels in my hands.

The big disadvantage is trying to mount anything on them such as lights, cyclometers, HR monitors, etc. Most stuff doesn't fit.
just run a little zip tie through the screw holes works great!nmthe bull
