The bike shops stopped carrying them after "aero" brake levers became the norm since their mounting area disappeared. The advent of STI/Ergo levers killed their sales completely.
I had them on several older bikes and have adapted a couple of aero levers to use them by cutting a flat on top of the housing and drilling and threading it for a long M5 bolt. Now I use the Third Eye bar end mirror and have found it very satisfactory.
