    Accessorie bar / bar or stem mounted???

    Ive been searching for an accessory bar that could accommodate a cyclometer, light and some other accessories maybe a GPS. Anyway I haven't been able to come up with much. Could anyone point me in the right direction?

    PS.. I have searched the forum and came up with one hit and it wasnt exactly what I was looking for.

    Thanks,

    Jason

    You can probably get a carbon variation for somewhere between $30-50 (diff brand).

    the nitto ones are beautiful, and available from ben's cycle, but quite a bit more expensive than the minoura. Nitto might be worth it if aesthetics are important to you...

    Can you put one of those all the way around the bike's headtube to try to mount a handlebar light down low (below a handlebar bag)?

    They fit around handlebars and stems. You could certainly make your own mount for it if you are mechanically inclined.
    I use mine on my stem, mounting my light "below" it to get it just right.

    I just got the Minoura "Besso" I mounted mine in the stem but it can be mounted almost anywhere. On sale at Nasbar for 6.95 Not for carbon forks. If you look at the Topeak bar bag line, they have mounts that are detachable for lights, computers etc.
