Shimano nexus shifter mounting
What are you all doing to mount these shifters on drop bars (threaded fork)? I have an old pair of 22.2mm grip steel drops that I would love to put one of these shifters on, but I understand the housing won't allow for bringing it up flush with the stem. I know about the HubBub adaptor, but am uninterested. I've heard of people cutting the bars, installing, and then somehow gluing them back together, but I can't see how this would work well. Would grinding a bit off the bars at the tight turns work?
My last resort is to replace with a threadless fork and mount a second stem with a short piece of straight bar above the drops, but this seems like too awkward a solution.
