I am using the Profile Airstrykes. I am considering switching my handlebars out for the cowhorn style. I would like to continue using the Airsrykes. Is there a mount for shifters made for these bars? I looked at the front plug. Is that for cable routing?

Do a search for Profile Swiftshift.

It is a mounting bracket and cables - you supply the "downtube" style shifters which attach to the bracket at the wide part of the airstryke. Cables do NOT route through bar...

You can, however, tape the cables to the horizontal part of the bar.

A lot of people disagree with me, but I just run my STI levers on the end of my cowhorn bars. I found that the majority of the time I want to shift is when I'm on the cowhorns anyway.
