|I have oversized 31mm Ritchey bars on my new Fuji and I went through this exercise myself. After purchasing a Planet Bike computer and having to return it, I did a lot of research on the subject. The computers I found that would mount on the oversized bars are:
Cateye Astrale (new 2003 model)
Sigma Sport (all 2003 models)
Vetta VT100 (RTxx models will NOT fit)
These would not fit:
Planet Bike Protoge (too bad - neat computer!)
All Supergo brand computers
The 2003 Cateye Mity, which has the same body as the Astrale, might fit.
I went with the Sigma Sport BC1600. It mounts with bands so it fits fine.
Basically, you need a computer that mounts with zip ties or rubber bands. Anything that mounts with the "old style" plastic C-clamp won't cut it. And unfortunately most computers still use the older style clamp.
