Can I borrow someone's clip-on aero bars?

I'm doing the Madera stage race in the middle of March, and there's a TT stage. I figure aero bars would be beneficial for this stage (although not necessary). Does anyone have some that they won't be using that I could borrow for a few weeks to practice/race with?

I live in San Francisco, and can travel within reasonable distance if need be.


Thanks!

I have a few pairs that are just taking up space in my closet that I would happily part with. I let someone else from BF borrow a pair for the Esparto TT last summer.

I paid about $75 per pair, but would sell a pair for $20 if they work for you, but feel free to try a pair for a test ride. Easiest thing for me would be to meet at my building (9th & Judah), or at the Polo Fields where I am every Tuesday/Thursday night at 6PM unless the ground s wet or the weatherman says its going to be wet.

Hey Chris, which pairs do you have?

Any that work with both std and OS bars?

I'm looking for a set that will work with my bike and the tandem for occasional TTs.

Of course Arexjay get's priority if he wants anything. Just wondering.

I've got a couple of excess pairs, as well. One Scott w/o pads, and one Profile with pads. The both came off "standard" bars, but I suppose with long enough bolts they'd work on oversize.

I have a short pair of Syntace for standard bars and a pair of Profile adjustable for oversize bars. Both have pads. I also have a strange pair for regular bars with missing pads that came on my TT bike when I bought it used.

I'm not sure which bars would work best with what I've got now (Nitto Noodles), so maybe I'll stop by your place to check a couple out. I really appreciate it!

I PM'd you, as well.
