    Yep. I cut handlebars. Best tool is a pipe cutter. You get that at Ace, Lowes or HD. Saw will do the trick, too.

    As for the desired width... well, that is a matter of personal choice. I'd recommend to cut a little, give it a try and cut some more if it feels still too wide. Another trick is to use lock-on grops and simply move everything more to the cener for a test. Never mind the end of the bar sticking out.

    In any case I would not recommend to cut the bar shorter than your comfortable push-up spread. Do a push-up and measure the distance between the outsides of your hands. It is a clue. Bar can be wider (more control) but should not be shorter (you'll start to constrict your breathing).
