    What is bar-extension for mounting twist-shifters?

    Hello:

    Can you identify this bar-end extension? See figure from Rohloff Speedhub 14-speed Internal-Gear Bicycle Hubs (Speed Hub)


    The extension should bolt directly at any point without having to slide from an open end.

    Here is one such item on page Cane Creek - Contact Points

    marked Newto 31 and mounted perpendicular to the handlebar with a white part bolted to the black part.

    Identified. This is a stem and not a bar-end.

    The setup shown in that pic will work only if you have a bike with a 1" steerer fork and a quill stem. A rare bike these days.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    That's a good point.
    I open to the location--so can fix to stem, handlebar or other handy place.
    First need to find a boltable bar-end.

    A "Minoura Besso Adapter" might work. Here's a pic of one I used with a shim/extension to mount my Polar HRM to:





    And here's a google shopping link.

    Good luck.

    oh, seems like it's still pretty clunky - why not mount a twister to the bar?
    Honestly... ahh I give up
