I used a lower positioned second stem stacked on my threadless steerer tube,
and placed a cut off piece of aluminum 1" tubing in place of the use of a handlebar.

You can buy a low cost 25.4 mm seatpost and cut it up to get a thick wall tube , at about $15
[see #6]
Can't link directly, but there is a welded aluminum T, welded to a single bolt clamp,
that does the same thing, in one piece
it's cross bar is 7/8" and also allows a gripshifter to be relocated there.
sold by sjscycles.co.uk in a 5cm and 10 cm extension length.
[see #6]

Others have used the 2nd stem and angled one down so as to get that bar
that mounts the quick Release handlebar bag at just the right height for their purpose .
