    Tried some new TT bars

    HI,
    Went by that Bikeisland and bought the cheapest TT bars they had mounted them on the Cad 4 and was surprised how they helped me roll a little faster.
    The main reason I bought them was my hands were giving me some pain due to daily rides of 30 miles or so.
    Now I have three option or hand positions for ridding and my hands feel much better. well worth 50 bucks and free shipin.
    Doug

    Maybe it's me - But I would be afraid to try those things.

    I've been thinking about trying them but I have the same basic reaction: they look scary. What was your learning curve on them?

    I just put them on my Hybrid this weekend. They were no problem to ride with but the brakes and the shifter is not at your fingertips, It is nice to rest on your forearms

    Is that a bottle of Molsen in that rear bag?

    I put a borrowed pair on my Litespeed so I could ride after hand surgery. At first I had a hard time riding in a straight line, but they weren't too bad. They were nice on longer rides as they give you a completey different position on the bike. The only reason I took them off is that they didn't look good on my bike.

    Some take to them like a duck.............I did not. After a while, I could cruise, but I could not make real power without becoming the woblin goblin. It could be me however, as my balance is shot.
