I am currently involved in a school year long engineering project that involves cycling and the use of aerobars and I am curious about peoples biking experiences with them. I have developed this very quick 10 question survey for people who are experienced with, or use aerobars on their bike. I would greatly appreciate it if people would be willing to answer these short questions.
Just follow the link below to take the quick survey. Its perfectly safe by the way.
Please be honest with your answers and thank you very much for your time.

Ummm, you're welcome.
I assume this is market research for a new product?
That or a Business class assignment.
New product??? I have a feeling what these guys are getting at is already on the market:

Yes, this is market research for an engineering class project where me and a partner are developing safer ideas for aerobars

Seems pretty obvious that it has something to do with adding brakes to the aero bars. If done right, it could be a cool thing.

I don't think Aero bar brakes are a good idea.
* Center of mass is more foreward
* More importantly, the hand position on the bar is parallel to the direction of travel. When braking hard, alot of the braking force for your body goes through your hands. I could see hands sliding right off of the ends of the aero bars.

Think out of the box. What if they were just for bleeding a little speed rather than for hard stops? There are several things that could be done to make them useful and safe.
