Seat adjustments for aerobars ......
Read a good article on seat settings for a better aero position in the "Triathletes Training Bible".
It mentions a fore/aft seat adjustment is necessary to get the full benefit of the aero bars. Instead of dropping a plumbbob from the front of your knee and setting the seat so the string intersects the pedal axle, for aero position the plumbbob should be dropped from the knob on the side of your knee instead (head of the Fibula). This brings your seat forward a bit which should improve aerodynamics and comfort.
I was just curious if any of you that have added aerobars to your road bikes have done this, and if so, has it worked out good?
