3. Will the SaltStick Mini Dispenser fit inside my road bars?
The SaltStick Dispenser will fit inside many road bars that have an empty void, usually covered with plastic caps. To fit inside the bars, a 3.3″ (84mm)straight run is required and a diameter of 0.6″ (15mm). If the road bars have significant ergonomic bends, there is a good chance the SaltStick Mini will not fit inside the bar ends, and would need to be mounted externally, in which case the SaltStick Dispenser (6 capsule model) is recommended.
