I want to put TT bars on my MTB. I'm gonna need a new stem too.
What do you guys think about this?
I dont think it will make it look any prettier, best rule of thumb, (so it seems) is follow the directions on the box.
It reads something like this:
Directions: use on road bike.
elf 232 contra mundum.
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.
How are you going to mount your brakes?
