I use shimano tiagra road race levers. So I change gear using the brake lever, no seperate shifter. Cpq uses standard shifters and intend to upgrade to simular afaik.
This sytle of lever is the logical choice on drops, but a tad novel on homemade bullbars. It works very well on my dropped bars that have been turned on their side and cut down to convert to bull bars. Iprefer the upright feel of my set up over true bullbars. People use to make low profile bars simular to these by turning drops upside down and cutting down. Mine are a little more compact to get a tight fold. They are simular to old sytle time trail bars before areo wing stle took over.

Cqp in am just thinking of buying some of the panniers compactable with the tufflock? System that the mezzo rack uses. You posted a link to the lotus panniers. The "can you fit panniers to a brompton" got me thinking they might work. Mezzo rack is about 50% longer than a b#*?@+m rack.
