Need ~1 9/16" OD carbon tube for rack repair (USA)

Looking for carbon tube to sleeve into my rack tube on B2 USA1128. it's split about a foot and a half forward from the aft end - fully broken but not displaced. didn't even notice it for a while.

ID of the broken tube is 1 5/8". I think something smaller but reasonably close to that should work to slide inside. Anyone have a scrap piece they would sell me? Its' a straight circumferential break, so I don't think the sleeve needs to be all that long.

Any advice? The aft rack strut is cracked on the same side - I plan to just wrap a carbon cast on there unless directed otherwise.

If I can't find a reasonable tube to use, I'll resort to making my own sleeve, but I thought I should check in first to see if I can help anyone clean out their garage...

Located in Wisconsin - happy to pay for material and shipping.

Thanks!

Scott

I figured I'd post this here after suggesting it to you:

The tube splices might be a good way to solve this, though I've never tried it myself.
