How does one attach these to the ends of aerobars? Are these the right ones? I'm assuming the DA-9 shifters is compatible with 105-9.
There are "pods" that fit in the end of the bars that these shifters bolt onto. If you buy a 9 sp bar-end shifter kit ($60 - $70, try Harris Cyclery), it will include the pods.

You mean this will include the pods?
Back in stock! Shimano Dura-Ace 9 Speed Bar-end Shifters $79.95 http://sheldonbrown.com/images/addtocart_button.gif (http://harriscyclery.net/site/itemdetails.cfm?ID=718)
9-speed for the not-so rich! These work with Ultegra, 105, RSX and all other recent Shimano derailers except pre-1997 Dura-Ace. Convert an 8-speed bike to 9-speed with these shifters, new 9-speed cassette (../k7.html), and chain. These are compatible with all Shimano 9-speed equipment.

It's just expensive to buy from the US. Buying locally or from the UK is usually the cheapest options.
THanks, I now know I need these extra little parts!

You can buy adapters to allow downtube shifters (which is what your photo showed) to be used as bar-end shifters or as aerobar shifters. Rivendell (www.rivendellbicycle.com) sell these adapters for about $30 /pair.
Usually the factory barcon kits come with the shifters, pods, cable stops, cable housing, and cables.
