    Easton EA30 Wing Road HandleBars- Adding Accessories

    I am wanting to buy the Easton EA30 Wing Road Bar or possible the EA70 Bar.But I can't find enough info about attaching things to them.I currently have a handlebar bag,computer,and inline brakes.I haven't read or seen pictures showing how far the bars are round from the stem.Anyone have any experience with either of these bars?

    I've got them, but they're at home, and I won't be back until mid-March.

    I'll tell ya this -- I can just squeeze my inline levers between the stem and the flats. They also have to fit 31.8mm because there's no cylinder shape between the clamp area and the flats. I'm not sure that I'd be able to fit a computer mount in there at all, unless it's got a narrow clamp like Shimano FlightDeck or one of those add-on mounts like this one from FSA:

    Here's the one pic I have so far; not sure if I took any others yet.

    Thanks for the picture.It looks like if I want these bars,I'll need to make brackets.

    Enough steerer tube spacers used, then a second stem
    can go under the one that holds the bars.
    just need that thickness of spacers to remove,
    and the fork not pre cut too short.

    a bike tourist's trick for handlebar bags , or too many widgets..
    for the amount of handlebar available to put on them

    The set-up requires an uncut threadless fork or a threadless adapter in a threaded fork. Two stems are fitted to the steering tube. The bottom one is installed upside-down with a flat-bar trimmed to a width appropriate for your bag etc. The drop-bars are installed using the top stem which is installed right-side up. The combo leaves the upper bar relatively uncluttered and drops the centre of gravity of the bar-bag at the same time.

    There are variations on this http://www.crazyguyonabike.com/doc/?doc_id=1834and a few off the shelf items as well http://thelazyrandonneur.blogspot.co...ipshifter.html

    This may be a simple modification.But since it's new to me,I think I should probably take it to a bike shop for help.I'd hate to be getting wrong parts.Thanks for the information and pictures.
