          That bar is steel, so it's a lot less vulnerable to fatigue failure than an aluminum bar.

          I was looking at bolting the handlebar end of a 4-bolt bike stem to 4 new holes in a KH style plate, and clamping a MTB handlebar in the steerer tube end. That way all the parts are being used the way the designer intended. The project lost momentum because cutting my own KH style plate seemed like too much work. And cost of buying one from UDC (a half hour up the road from me), plus the shipping, plus tax, seemed excessive.

            Do you think is rigid this handle?

            May be too much torque....

              I put machine screws through both walls of T6 aluminum tubing. Solid as it gets.

                The way I see it, the problem is not about how strong the screws or whatever components are, it's that the distance between the two attachment points is very small compare to the handle's length.
                A long lever applying a (potentially) massive amount of torque on a small area. Kinda like a crowbar.

                      I love the idea of a straight post or a U post as a handle evolution!!

                      Great work, well done, keep pushing and share with us your impressions!!!

                      Thanks!!!!

                        Continuing to modify and refine my mono handle. With this version the base is attached to a plate which is secured by all 4 mounting bolts just like a standard handle. Total weight: 135g. I plan to shorten the handle by about 4 inches, roughly the length of the foam grip.

                        On another note, tomorrow I'll be lacing up my new carbon rim to the schlumpf hub.

                            Thanks for the heads-up, fetzenschorsch.

                            Looks nice.
                            And pricey.

                              It will be interesting to hear how comfortable the finished version is. If there was a narrow version like the KH Zero/One I would give it a try.

                                I think those are even thinner than a Zero/One (at least they feel that way) It would be nice to have the actual measures!
