Just put Profile Air Stryke (sp) on my Sirrus Pro. They look very cool but I think it will take a little getting used to. Any hand movement is magnified quite a bit when down on the bars but it is definitely more aerodynamic. I think I'll take it to a track and try it there. At the moment, it's a little scarey on the road. Anyone else use these or similar item?
Yup, I use the Profile Century bars. It's the same model, but the pads stay in place instead of swinging up. You definitely want to make sure you're comfortable in them, and feel safe before going real fast. Don't worry, I'm sure you'll get used to them, and they'll be no problem. I'm a seasoned pro on aero bars now (especially on the track!), I ride the pursuit on the track and always use them for road time trials. But, when I first rode them, it was a little scary.

I have some Profile aero bars out in the shed. I should put them up for sale on eBay and see how much I can get for them.
