    PDW Bar-ista (or similar) on drop bars?

    Hey, guys - playing with the idea of getting a cyclocross style bike, which would mean drop bars and interrupter levers. Does anyone know if it's possible or practical to put a bar-mounted coffee cup holder on a setup like that? I have one on each of my bikes right now, but those both have flatter bars, and "mountain bike" diameter. It's a super practical thing to have, and I'd hate to have to go without!

    Can't speak to the interruptor brakes but the Bar-ista fits on the stock bars on my Mercier Aquila AL. I have some flat top bars that I confirmed it won't work on.

    That's pretty much right where the interruper lever goes. Hmm....

    Anyone else?

    A valid point, but I like to be able to make random stops at Dunkin Donuts. I've also used the cupholders on my bikes for carrying paper cups from fast food places on my lunch breaks at work sometimes.

    Fast food might not be so great for you

    But yeah, I'm on a similar boat, though don't have a pressing need for a Bar-ista to carry a Tim Horton's double-double yet. If you figure out what's a good way to mount that, I'm all ears

    There are widgets that attach to replace the stem cap, Pauls Makes one ,
    It then creates a tube to attach things you wanted to fit onto your overcrowded Bars

    You then would attach that cup Holder onto it , probably facing rearward.

    Minoura has some handle bar water bottle cage adapters
    that fit right over the front of the stem
    in the center ..

    Of course You can always just reverse the cup holder on the bars too. Point it to theBack

    Covert to a 26.0 clamp bar and you can mount the cupholder closer to the stem.

    Apparently, the Origin-8 version is available with a 31.8mm clamp. Now I just have to figure out if it's possible to get it on there without getting in the way of the brake levers.
