I've read about how one can use other extensions on their Shiv (TT models or older Shivs), and I might need to go this route. The reason is the final bend of the supplied extensions which turns the extension back to horizontal is right where I need to mount my shifter. Since it's not straight, I won't be able to fit the shifter's expander plug.
I recently realized the 2012 Shiv TT won't accept the PRO Missile Evo stem, so my plan of swapping out for the Missile Evo stem/bars/extension won't work. I'm in the position of having to try alternate extensions.
Does anyone know which extensions can be mounted to the Shiv's holders (if one goes through the melting & epoxy route)? In particular, I'm looking for a bar that will have a slight up-tick so that my hands are level with the pads (w/o spacers). I'd prefer not to use a completely flat bar, but perhaps it will come to that.
Something like the Missile Evo extensions would be nice, where they are flat then angle upwards. I could deal with something that has an early curve (close to the bars), or something that I can cut from the end to around a length of 20cm and still have a straight section for attaching the expander plugs.
(Why not just shifters a few cm out? Key issues here are my position being subject to UCI regulations and using Di2 shifters.)
Many thanks for any options I can explore.
