Should I get them?
No, because they're useless off road due to
A) the low speeds involved with MTBing
B) the instability caused by the position
I know randonneurs occasionally use them because of the skeletal support, but they're on touring bikes.
Perhaps if you race and the course has a road part, aerobars are of acceptable if ridiculous use. But that's not the case. Aero+MTB=incompatable.
