Questions about purchasing bicycles and parts

I am currently running a single headlight, a Polar HRM, and have recently just added some Syntace 'aero bars' (I think that is what they are called).
Now, basically I seem to have 'lost' the tops of my bars! I have run out of room, and I can't just cruise along with my hands on the tops any longer.
I have been looking around for something that I heard about recently, which allows you to basically replicate a portion of the handlebar, giving you more 'space' to put stuff on...
Here is one I found on a British site:
Has anyone seen anything like this available here in Oz, and hopefully, not so ugly? This seems to stick out about 10 centimetres from the bar, making it look like an awful last minute add-on. I was wondering if anyone here uses something similar to this, although hopefully somewhat more graceful looking.
Cheers for any hints,
Thanks for the local llnk Andrew, cheers.
Bnej, I managed to score myself another roadie - this is a red Greacross roadie (pics to be posted soon, when I find my darn camera battery!). I picked it up a couple of weeks ago from a guy in Bathurst for the surprisingly cheap sum of $100 (ahhh, eBay). The Repco was just too tall for my little legs - but for $40 it was a very useful tool for measuring tubes and comparing them to bikes on offer on eBay!
As for the bars, I have to say I am still getting used to them. I have only tried them out briefly after setting them up . I was hoping to go out to the Lakes on Sunday to give them a decent try out, but it was... well you know what it was like.
I bolted them in place on Saturday night, and have only been able to really do the driveway so far.
The Katoomba Hill Sampler sounds a bit deadly!! How many of you do it? I would be by far the slowest in the pack, so I might wait a while till I get some speed/endurance up before I venture out into a group!
Quoting the promo for the ride:
1. Bring a road bike. MTBs do it tough (I found out about it!)
2. It's really an hour and a half, average is about 21km/h
3. It's a social ride, and there are a number of stops so we don't drop anyone. There is a sprint on nearly every hill though.
Numbers vary, but there's normally a good bunch of 10 or more.
