    Bike Friday H bars

    I find my H bars a bit cramped, any suggestion on making more space?
    After adding a bell and speedo or GPS, I'm running out of room.
    It needs to stay compact so that it can still back in a case.

    BTW- I'm riding a Llama

    I fit trekking bars , had the H , traded them back.

    another bike, I stacked threadless stems, and lower of the 2, put a 1" tube in, instead of bars, for bar bag & etc.

    sort of this effect http://www.sjscycles.co.uk/thorn-acc...deg-prod11041/
    but the common stem face plate aids the knockdown ..

    How about a DIY split drop bar? I remember reading somewhere that the mod is pretty easy to do. Maybe you could even use some the parts from your H bar to do it.

    One of the BF's I ordered also came with a split bullhorn bar (43 c-c). I don't know what sort of space you have or are looking for, but I could easily sell it to you for a very reasonable price.

    thanks all for the suggestions

    I'll need a few more miles to decide on a bar change, I like the option from fietsbob at the moment, moving the lights, GPS, etc, will get me more room
