Minoura Spacer Light/Gadget Mount and Di Light Fender-Hole-Mount

These appear to be nifty little mounts, unfortunately I'm only able to mount one of my Niterider Lumina 750s.
I once used a single light -- then decided to use a pair side by side on my bars. I have made objective observations that this side-by-side headlamp setup gets me noticed like a car get's noticed. It also gives me a custom lighting path.

I use 54mm, 2" riser bars and after the pair of lights, Ergon GP5 grips, brake levers and shifters, I have no more room on the bars for anything else.

If I could mount my pair of lights side by side down below, this would be great!
So, does anyone know of a similar below-the-stem type of mount, with a longer mounting bar to allow accommodate two headlamps?

Please note that I do not wish to mount anywhere on my forks. Thanks in advance!

Sorry cannot help with any suggestions but find your idea quite interesting. I know Busch & Muller also do a stem mount but it would suffer the same problem as you have now: a single light, unless it could be hacked in some way.



EDIT: It just occured to me to have a poke around SJS Cycles in the UK for ideas including the following ...


Additive Spacer Two Device Holder



Dia-Compe Gran Compe MH-1 Handlebar Accessory Mount



Thorn Accessory Bar T Shaped 172.5 mm Extension


Mounty Space Bar II Stem Cap Fitting


There are by the looks some other options as well but this should get you started

Look up "handlebar extender" on eBay and then sort by "price + shipping lowest first" and you will find at least a dozen different designs for under $10. I paid $17 for one like this a couple of years ago and now it is available for under $5

The stuff from Minoura is nice but really expensive for something so simple to fabricate.

Thanks for the help! All great options, but with my 54mm wide riser bars, I really need to go below the stem.
I'm unable to use the rising part for mounting anything, and the grips with bar ends, levers and shifters take up the ends.

So there's only 1" each side of the stem available. What's more, I also occasionally throw on a bar bag...

There have been options shown without using the bar (like the Dajia Stem extender).
If you'd show an picture of your bar, it woul be easier to say more.

There are also this solutions:
k-edge.com/shop/
hidemybell.cc/en/theproduct/
morsadesigns.com/how-it-works/


Anyway, this solution from K-Edge for Niterider lights needs less than one inch:
