Saw a post for some Salsa riser bars for sale and it got me thinking...

Had this hanging in the garden for a while now, Salsa saddle had died and the bars were just so narrow and "odd" I thought of another use for them

Sure I'm not the only one out there with odd uses for retro parts :wink:

Nothing boutique, just practical. Having stud walls i wanted to reinforce the heated towel rail(quite heavy), so hacked down a 90's post. It works and blends in nicely :wink:
