Subject: Aero Bars on Road Bike
Hello

I am still relatively new to the triathlon scene, but I did complete my first one this last summer and am really excited about continueing and improving. I did not blow the bank on a bike and purchased a Maron Argenta A6 Sora Road Bike 12 and it is great for me, but I was wondering about adding aero bars to it. Is adding aero bars to a road bike a good idea? Does is it actually work out for a road bike?

Any information you can provide would be very greatly appreciated. Thanks for the help

Brad

Some people do it, some despise it. I'm thinking of doing it to mine. Because of the road bike geometry, get mini bars like these http://www.visiontechusa.com/category_list/43/Clip-on-Barsor get adjustable ones like the Profile-Designs T2+ but DONT ADJUST YOUR CURRENT FIT!!!!!

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?

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.

You can spend a small fortune on these pre-wrapped bundles of energy, thinking they offer magic ingredients-not true. “Energy” simply means “provides calories” and not “will make you feel energetic."
