no nightlight

This is a nice handlebar but manufacturers don't recognize this shape for add-ons like a headlight. If you ride at night, especially in hotter climes, a night ride is great but you won't be doing it with this handlebar. It would be nice if someone could mount a headlight on the handlebar stem.

I'm able to squeeze both of mine on. It's tight, but doable. I have a Niterider Minewt 350 (separate battery, not the integrated model) that I have to loop beneath the cables near the stem, and a Serfas USL 5 that works wherever. Both have elastic attachments and work just fine.

I agree that it's not as easy as other handlebars I've used, especially with the thick tape I have on (service course).

If you like the shape of the bar but not the flat tops, the FSA Omega Pro Compact is the exact same bar with a standard round top.
