I am sure this have a very limited market so does that increase its value? I am not sure I ever saw one actually being used. Is it worth $10? $20? or not worth the effort at all?



To add a little clarification... This 'post' is designed to take the place of a stem to use an older wire style handlebard bag holder like this Cannondale one.



BullMoose bars

OK That ^ was funny.

If I read it right BG, you would need bullmoose bars to make it work?

OH yes that is correct. I was make the old wire handlebar bags work on BullWinkle type bars, until of course Cannondale among others came up thnat horrible plastic mount.

I will admit to spending about $20 total on ebay for one of those. Sill in the box...... I think its basically a one of those Tandem stoker bar nubs with out the cover and a red dot.

I think the tandem dummy lever might sell for more by itself.
