I want to mount the following SunRace clamp-on shifter set horizontally as a "thumb" shifter on a straight MTB handlebar (22.2mm). I will remove the left lever and only use the right with the clamp.
The problem is that the lever is not easy to reach because it swings from parallel with the handlebar to straight forward. I would like to have the angle of the full swing of the lever go from a little towards me to a little forward.
Is there an easy way to change the angle of these stem-mount shift levers (which are almost the same as downtube shift levers) by about 45 deg?
Note (in second pic) that these are meant for stem mount, so there is a cable housing stop for the part of the shift cable housing that goes from the handlebar to a downtube stop.
