I picked up a pair of these about 2 years ago: https://encrypted-tbn3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQd3Q3iPmMQKFfVYWn3D1t9fRIB9aWdUeDCDvSoZqNvg6xBTCb5
They're fitted to my low rise bars, and I find them useful. Getting them in the right place on the bars is an issue when you've got grips, shifters, brake levers/master cylinders, a light, bell, computer and stem to fit in somewhere.

As mentioned the lack of brake levers is a bit sketchy, but I only use them in low-risk situations and am used to switching quickly to the flat bars now.

I thought about hacking in a second set of levers, but never got round to it. Then I got hydraulic brakes (best thing ever) and forgot about it. It would probably work but would require a bit of plumbing. Might give it a go some time.
