I’ve been trying out my Rohloff shifter mounted to a Thorn Accessory Bar and didn’t love it – details here. It’s taken me a while, but I’ve gotten around to moving the shifter to my Titec H-bars. Since the Titec H-bar is a little short on space I’ve had to cut down the right Ergon Grip to fit. This is the same setup as I use on my Surly Big Dummy. I’m going to really enjoy having much easier access to this shifter. I don’t shift a lot compared to some people, but having to take my hand off the bars and hunt down the Rohloff shifter was not much fun at all.
I no longer need the second smaller Thorn Accessory Bar so I’ll be getting rid of it at some point when the mood strikes me to tinker. For now I’m not using my Ortlieb handle bar bag so I’ll put my headlight on it out of the way.
