You mentioned Rohloff. If you use a Rohloff on drop bars, there are over a dozen ways to mount the shifter if you use the stock Rohloff shifter. I tried about three different locations before I settled on using the Hubbub adapter to put the shifter on my right side bar end. But I had used bar end shifters for a couple decades before I bought the Rohloff, so it was second nature for me to reach down there to shift.

They show the Hubbub adapter as being wooden, that is WRONG, it is all metal. Photo of my setup below. Note that I use two V brake noodles to route my cables forward from the shifter. I do not think anyone else uses those noodles the way I do, most people have the cables sticking out the side of the shifter.
