    nice video, but sorry to be a whiner, and it's 10 times better than I could do. The aerobars gotta go. they block the view too much, specially when you are using them.
    question everything.

    way,

    heh, thanks for sharing. I just got a new bike and stuck at work.

    POV bike riding video is perfect for me right now.

    Your replies have inspired me to do another video. Sorry, aerobar still there. But I tried to keep my hands off it as much as possible.


    Video

    Thank you all again

    Edit: I'm not technically versed but my handlebar is 26mm around the center (which extends about 10cm) and about 22mm the rest. I mail ordered the aerobar, I wasn't even sure if it will fit

    you should mix some music in with the sound from the video when doing the titles and stuff...

    Do you notice any actual top speed gain in the aero bars?

    Aerobars make you

    a) more aero
    b) makes your upper body more still
    c) which in turn let's you hammer it more

    Thank god for aerobars, it's always breezy/windy around here.

    Plus, the bike is actually too small for me. It's definitely a must for anything more than 2 minutes of ride.

    krazyderek, I actually did use music on my earlier vids, but I think I prefer sans music now.

    Couple of reasons... my helmet wasn't strapped on, didn't want that to fly into the river. Didn't want to push the bike into the river, and definitely don't want to stumble as a result and fly myself into the river

    Nice to see the Detroit skyline from the other side of the rive. Don't mean to steal your thread, but I love those aerobars, does anyone know if they can be fitted on any bike? I'd love to have a set on my Trek Hybrid but don't know anyhting about anything when it comes to stuff like that, especially since I have grip shifters
