    You need a pinch collar to hold the steering tube in place then you are free to move the stem up and down as you please.
    I got QBP's 'Locking Spacer' for that , I have an integrated headset bike, the fork falls out easily.. without it.

    Then I Got one of Mike Ahren's 'Wise *******'s'.. another 9/8" pinch bolt spacer .. It has an Accessory function ..

    I can't get myself to cutup a good pair of handlebars
    .

    1" aluminum tubing will do fine.. [the SJS thing, the 'T' is 7/8" /22.2mm]

    I'm looking at a Jeff Jones H-Loop handle bar for my Surly Ogre project
    http://www.jonesbikes.com/h-bar.html
    and a comment in another forum made me realise that the handlebar wasnt Ortlieb Ultimate 5 friendly.
    I thought a second longer stem underneath with an angle might be a workable fix.
    Thanks if its convenient - no worries if its not.
    Cheers
    I used a Titec H-bar with a Thorn accessory bar so I'll have some place to mount a handlebar bag. For now I use it for my bell and lights,works very well.

    Thank you both for the pics and suggestion.
    You were both pipped at the post by Henrik of the http://www.woollypigs.com/ blog.
    I spotted the Thorn accessory bar on his partner Peli's LHT and quizzed them on it.
    I got a very speedy response with a link.
    A kind soul on the Australian local forum (bicycles.net.au) had one he wasn't using and donated it to me for the price of postage. I assume its on its way.
    I'll try to remember to post a pic when it arrives and is installed on my Surly Ogre.
