- Jul 16, 2011I've had H-Bars and old thumb shifters on my xtra for a couple years. The "bar end" part of the bar has always been useless to me even without a shifter there, it's too narrow to be of use for leverage like a bar end typically gets used, and there's little point in using it for an aero position on a cargo bike. I spend 100% of the time with my hands on the regular grip area. The length of the thumb shifter lever also makes it an easy reach from the grips.

Anyway you set it up there is some amount of compromise involved. If you run them on the front part, it leaves the grip area pretty small, for my hands at least. Let is know how it works either way you set it up and post some pictures.
