    Need drops that are good for mounting junk, lights, etc, on.

    I'd prefer to use bullhorns but I can't find a way to mount my bar ends and a pair of brake levers to any.

    So, I need some drops that will allow me to clamp a lot of things to them without any sort of "don't clamp things here!" warnings in the manual.

    I'd think that would be most of them but a quick search finds these;

    I still can't figure out why you would mount bar ends to bullhorn bars...

    You do realize we are talking shifters?

    Oh. Well, never mind then. I think if you said "bar ends" to most mountain bikers, then they are gonna think what I was thinking. Still seems a bit weird to me, but not as weird as what I thought we were talking about.

    He's talking about this sort of thing: Universal Cycles -- Cane Creek CrossTop Alloy Brake Levers

    I used to use one of these levers as my front brake lever on my Steamroller. It was mounted up by the stem. They are meant to interrupt the brake lines on drop bars to give you a 2nd braking option when you are on the flats of drop bars, but they also work as stand alone brake levers. So in theory you could mount the brake levers by the stem and the shifters at the ends of the bars.
