    Why would you want to do that ... what is it that you want to accomplish?

    Might be some issues with implementing that idea.

    Why not just use aerobars or curved barends?

    I'm thinking you're going to find that most bar ends are slightly undersized so they won't clamp onto themselves.

    barends go on bar ends and if your barends are bars with ends then why not put barends on the ends of your barends where your barends end... [/DrSeuss]

    If you put barends on barends on barends, etc. and the barends malfunction and you crash and hurt yourself, you would have trouble collecting damages from the barends manufacturer/s since you would be using them for a purpose they weren't intended for. Good luck with your project and be sure to post some pictures. That's what I'm waiting for.
    (could you somehow attach a second handlebar to the barends?)

    Why should the barend manufacturer be responsible for experimental work to begin with? People IMHO are waaay to lawsuit happy...I like to think of it as Darwin's Theory in action

    in-line levers as used by the cyclocross riders.

    Aerobars on a mtb with risers? Lol.

    Why not just buy drop bars. That's essentially what you did. In a manner that cannot be considered particularly safe.

    If it works for you, go for it.

    I think I'd take my chances with the scooter rather than riding in the handmade drops.

    OK. Maybe that explains some of the set-ups I've seen in the Commuting forum. I guess it's a Trekkie thing.

    I've done it, so I guess it can be done.

    [There are different diameters out there, though -- both the outside diameters of the tips of the bar ends, and the inside diameters of the clamps can vary.

    Sometimes shims can solve the problems.

    It's better to match them in the beginning, though.]

    Also, you can achieve all kinds of different angles and shapes, depending on the bends, and on the angles of the tips of the bar ends.
