There was a recent thread in which getting profile pads lower was a desire of someones. Well I have mine behind my basebar and at the same level but this tactic could be used if you wanted the pads directly on top too. I am going to post a bunch of pictures. And some directions.
First take the clamp that connects the extension to the handlebar and flip it upside down compared to normal.
Then connect the bar like you normally would, except it will now run underneath the handle bar.
After this use the pad connecting hardware, with longish bolts and spacers (if you want the bar behind the handlebar and flush with it like mine, less spacers are needed but watch out for your knees). If you want the pad right on top of the handle bar use enough spacers to get it there, then connect and attach the pad forward on the hardware.
The extensions can be cut to length by your local bike store including how high they rise and how long they are.
