This is probably better in the gear review section, but I really like these pics of the bike (more about pretty pics than a gear review!). 

I recently put the Z4+ from Inviscid, with the A2 bottle, on my P2C and have been very happy with the functionality - and it looks so cool... 

Having the Garmin front and center is easier to read, and the straw right there makes drinking without coming out of aero much easier.  In the HIM last weekend (Timberman - talk about an aswesome day, but that's another story), I only had to refill it a couple times during the race - and did so whilst climbing, so there was no aero penalty.  Plus, I removed the downtube bottle holder and went with 2 behind the seat - very slippery, but plenty of drink!  Felt all pro.  Tongue out

And for those concerned about the 3-4W you lose from having a straw stickin' up, note the slick clip the Z4+ has to hold it down.  Wink  All I had to do was push the tip toward my mouth with my right hand and sip away - then the straw popped nicely back into place.

I have no affiliation with these folks (like I'm gonna get sponsored? Ha!), but like to give a shout out when something works for me.  YMMV, but I thought it just looked too good not to post up...

TOYS!!!  Laughing

I read somewhere about "bar ends" to put on your handle bars, do you recommend them? Is this similar to adding clip on aero bars?

During the race there will be plenty of opportunities to exchange bottles, so I'm thinking about going with the aero bottle and Gatorade bottle and fill up as necessary. What should I do?

When first going aero, your shop should begin by putting you in the least aggressive position. This means the aerobar pads will be almost level or just below the saddle.
