I have a long steering tube, and a lot of space taken up by headset spacers.
My downtube shifters are a little too far down for me, so I'm thinking it would be cool to mount them on the steering tube.
I found this pic of just what I want: http://www.m-gineering.nl/vwijk8.jpg (it's not a headset spacer but it's where they would be; it's from this page: http://www.m-gineering.nl/m-ginpicg.htm
Does anyone know anyone who makes something like this? I'm in San Francisco, so if no one sells it, then recommendations on SF bike shops/mechanics would be appreciated.
Or how hard would it be to make something like this myself? What tools what I need? It would also be cool to make some other mounts, like for a light, or for a GPS. I am so sick of the cheap plastic mounts that come with all this stuff.
I bought a metal clamp on EBay, but not sure if it will work. I feel like a metal part would be more robust.
