Oversized barbag brackets

I want to fit a handlebar bag to my Dawes Vantage but the Klick-fix system is too small for the handlebar, which measures about 30mm. Any suggestions?

Although ‘oversize’ handlebars are now commonplace, and Rixen & Kaul do make 31.8mm clamps to go with their ubiquitous Klick-fix attachment system, retailers and makers of handlebar bags often provide only standard (22 to 26mm) clamps with the bracket. So you have to buy those clamps extra. They’re easy to find in shops or on the internet, for less than £3.
