Since I don't like drop bars (yes I have ridden them for several years off and on) and I agree with the drop bar folks that flatbar roadbikes have some limitations with regard to positions I have been riding this year with a base bar only setup (profile T2 wing). The setup has had both bar end shifters and brake levers on the ends of the bars and the upkick on the end of the bars is configured just about as hoods would be on drops.
Now that I'm this close I'm thinking about adding a set of short Aero bars to the package more for long ride comfort and for upwind riding then for pure speed and racing.
Has anyone here done this for routine riding. How'd it work out?
