    Aerobars

    Anyone use Aerobars on their road bike? They look like they would be very comfortable and help out when riding alone.

    I do. Got a set of profile century bars. Very comfortable, very useful for headwinds and a speed boost riding solo.

    I have one on my flat-bar commuter... It gives my hands a break and increases my speed by 2mph. I won't go as far as saying mine are comfortable... Just a different possition. The biggest drawback is I end up looking over the top of my glasses.

    Completely offtopic aerobars question:
    Aerobars are useful for:
    1: Increasing speed when far away from other riders (control issues)
    2: Alternate hand positions for long rides
    3: Bringing home take-out?

    My aerobars seem to be perfectly spaced to let me hang the bags from the local Chinese place on them. Anyone else do this?
