I believe the aerobars have a limited use: You need perfect asfalt and nothing/nobody to dodge. Chances of overstearing while using the aerobars are significantly increased and for "Brazilian asfalt condition", impossible to use.
We have a nice 20+km non-stop ciclopath that goes from Leme/Copacabana beach to Leblon. Today was a holiday, so on top of that the main streets in front of the beach were closed. Lots of bikers, skaters, runners,etc. I believe the Aerobars were used for less than 1km.
It looks really good though (lol)
