Whilst extremely tall cyclists, with very high handlebars, may be able to use this 45 degree accessory bar in an inverted position on their 1?" fork steerers (Replaces a few headset spacers); its intended use is at the rear of the bike, as a support for Brooks saddle bags.
Cyclists with legs longer than 31" using 26"wheels (or longer than 32" with 700 wheels) will find that this accessory bar provides attachment points at the correct height for the leather straps of the Brooks bag. This bar allows the use of a saddlebag on bikes without saddles which have bag loops. This accessory bar does not cut through the leather straps as bag loops tend to do.
The holes which are provided allow M5 screws to be inserted, which will prevent the straps from sliding off.
We used 2 M5 x 30mm stainless bolts, 4 washers, 2 on each bolt and 2 dome nuts. You will need to put a M5 drill through the holes to make hole throught the end plug for the bolt.
The 45 degree accessory bar has a 28.6 to 27.2mm shim included, which allows the potential of fitting to every Thorn bike ever made.

Width of bar - 150mm

T Bar Extension Used On Cyclocross Frame

I recommend this product
ProsGreat Bag-hanger, easy installation
I have a Jamis Supernova which has a Ritchey Carbon Fork. The fork has no eyelets or holes just cantilever brake studs. I am using this to mount an Arkle Handlebar bag for training rides on pavement. This places the bag considerably lower than a handlebar mounting and that makes possible the use of aerobars as the 45 degrees down is excellent.

Very easy to install.

The Stem Tube On My Bike Is 31.5 Mm. Will It Fit My Bike?

Unfortunately not, the clamp on this bracket is 28.6mm in diameter so it won't fit over your seatpost I'm afraid.

Please, Are The M5 Dome Nuts Available To Purchase? They Are Unavailable Where I Live.

Is there a way to request or purchase the M5 dome nuts with this T-bar? Thanks!

The bolt fitted to this is an M6 x 18mm dome nut bolt, you can easily fit a standard M6 socket head bolt instead, it does not need to be a dome head. We stock M6 socket head bolts and they are part number 1840, we don't have any in 18mm but the 20mm option still work perfectly fine.
