Looks good, but how accurate/reliable is the shifting with that arrangement? Doesn't the bag tend to bash the 90 degree bends on rough roads?

That's neat! Let me know if you come up with a solution for combining a barbag with bar top brake levers.

Looks good - what parts do I need to retrofit this to a new Audax 853 / Ultegra STI - and how fiddly is it to do?

Danger Mouse- brillantly simple solution!!

What size Carradice barbag is that? and what are the handlebar widths?
Did you have to cut the noodle at all?

Luceberg, thanks for the pointer. Try fitting Salsa Cross Bars they are a good deal wider than standard - you could tape a horse to the bars and still have room for top brake levers.
