    need more handlebar space

    I run moustache bars and would like to get my computer off of the bars and onto another mount. I have the Minoura Space bar and it is an inelegant solution. Ideally I'd attach something similar to the stem. At one point one of the online shops (Supergo, I think) had a stem cap that had an accessory bar attached to it. Does anyone know if these are still made? Any other suggestions?

    Thanks,
    James

    I'm assuming that's the one you have? Unfortunately that's the only one i know of. I have moustache bars to and can JUST fit my light on one side of the stem and computer on the other. Not much space at all.

    I have an older one, but similar. Mine doesn't have rotational adjustment. The problem is the Minoura is kind of big. Fine if you are mounting a ton of stuff, but really, I'm just looking to move the computer out to the front and run a head light some of the time. True this would work, and $10 isn't bad at all, but the accessory mount on the stem cap was so simple. I just can't seem to find it anywhere.

    Thanks,
    James

    One more thing, some of the lights I have been using of late have dual light heads. With the moustache bars I've had to get really creative to get them mounted along with the computer. I'd like the option of running dual light heads in the future too.
