Looking for...

Okay, first I'm not for sure what to call it, but I'm looking to see if I can find a bar that can be mounted to the handle bar and use it to mount the lights/computer to.

Anyone know of what I could get?

Thanks, Michael

Minoura Space Bar.

Ask in the "electrical gadgets/lighting" forum - alot of ppl use them to mount lights and stuff.

Topeak and Minoura both have accessory mounts. Another option (if you have a tall spacer stack on a threadless stem) is to plop a second stem on there and cut a handlebar down to the size you need. (sometimes the best option if you're trying to mount something heavy like a handlebar bag, which can't go on an accessory mount.)

Performance sells their own house brand of the Minoura. There is also the Sidetrak. I've modified both to use a larger diameter cross bar (and longer) with 1" aluminum tubing. It fits the light brackets better

Sidetrak



Performance/Minoura



The Sidetrak is a really solid unit but it doesn't work well with cantilever brakes.
