That would be the brake levers.

Measure from the end of your grip to the far edge of the brake lever. That's the minimum amount of straight section your new bars will require.

It'll work. Worst case, if the straight part of the bar isn't long enough, you'll have to cut the grip to fit. I have very narrow V-bars and Grip Shift on one of my recumbents, and the stationary grip is only 1.5" long.

Update

I discovered that trigger shifters work but are not ideal ergonomically on the upright bar. There's no space for the fingers to curl under the triggers. I changed them to twist shifters and am very glad I did. Much more comfortable and convenient.
