Here is my current set up. Two Alu triathlon bar extensions welded to a Alu base plate. Attached to Flatfish carbon seat base with 4x m5 allen bolts and flange nuts. I added the bridge close to the end to help stop the bars deforming during high speed UPDs (I couldn't get it heat treated after welding so it could still be improved.

I think more of you should try orienting your brake levers in the opposite direction. With the more modern short levers (for 1 and 2 finger braking on MTBs) it doesn't leave enough space for your other fingers to grip the bar without the clamp getting in the way. Turn it the other way around and bingo! One finger braking and full un-interrupted grip space on the bar.

I'm still not happy with the flex that I have in this set up still- not sure if it is in the seat base (doesn't seem as rigid as the Unicycle.com bases), or in the bars themselves. Would love to make my own custom carbon seat base/handle combo- got some ideas floating around but just need the time to experiment a bit.

I'm loving the Mad4one Handle Saddles and they have totally exceeded my expectations. My own handle idea is on the back burner due to fit issues.
