"The 33"-Road Bike Racing - Best position without aerobars
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
First race series of the season includes a TT with no aero equipment. So should I stick with the drops or should I go for resting my forearms on the tops and BSing a TT position. Time trial is a flat out and back.

I would say go with what you're the most comfortable doing. Also, do you have any idea which position puts your body into a more aerodynamic position on the bike? On your next ride either have your riding partner check your position while you try different positions or look at your shadow to see which position make you more aero. Another consideration is the distance of the TT. If it's short, say less than 10 miles, I don't think it would really make much of a difference which position you used. In that case I'd go with the position that I felt the most comortable with.
