Ok, another attempt to hide the blipbox:

I think this is best I cand do without modding the frame or getting so long wires that I can hide it in saddle or something.

When browsing the net I bumped to this project, where the guy was using the blipbox as only switching device and had mounted it at the end of one extension. No wires required.:)

^^ I think it's far better now. USPS looks neat, if only SRAM could make smaller Blip Box, or do something like in USPS bike, implement the power and electronix to bar end shifters and run the wires from brakes there...

I wish they would make version that would be built-in to bar end shifter.

blip is mounted on that little ledge thing. and this was drafted up to used a m10 nut and standard wedge from shimano bar ends i had laying around..... i have no idea if this will work and if the cut outs for the cable will be a guide (i'm thinking not) BUT, i wanted something to extend length of extensions.....

the blip grips i bought, were so underwhelming.

also the end of these grips, can take a standard bar end plug, so u can (potentially) get curved ones or something to cap this thing off.

i'm just curious if these will work.... will report back later

Well I think those SRAM Clics are super clean and wires are easily routed inside extensions all the way.

What would be interesting, would be disassemble blipbox and fit all the internals to custom bar end plug. Or create custom bar end plug where you could attach blipbox.

I could live without brake handle shifters now when I'm running 1x setup to be able to go completely wireless.

Had my own fastest ever (which, of course, is nowhere fast on absolute terms) TT yesterday - 3 laps on a local racetrack, slightly more than 10 miles, 43.7 kph @ mediocre 280W, 1:45 behind the 1st place guy. Not sure if there are low hanging aero fruits for me to grab left.

I have an aero session coming up, so there might be some minor position tweaks. Feeling quite good already!

Skinsuit is the most obvious. And ditch the bottle.
