My commuting rig, I set up a non standard Aero bar kit with the bars
high and close.
tall, short extension stem. .. it worked OK.. it was a long rural river bottom route..
I added a Zzipper fairing, the 'Thriller' version.. , which made the cool air
go around it .. rather than thru my clothing, so I didn't have to dress so warm.
the bars were a swap from a buddy , after he got a Campag brifter set,
and these . older 'Profile for Speed' .. a single tube bent to be both bullhorns
[ with reverse levers in the ends]
and the aero bars , with 2 downtube shift levers on the front position.
sorted out a hinged arrangement for the forearm pads to bring them out enough
as I didnt care for the elbows in position.
having all the controls only on the aero bars is not a good idea.
you need the wider grip for control stability cornering and descending.
