    Aero bars

    I'm sure this has been asked a lot, but my 2 second search did not find anything good.

    Basically, I'm looking for some comfy, light and not SUPER expensive clip tri-bars for my roadie. I'm doing a lot of triathlons now, and would like to add them to my bike for obvious reasons.

    Any suggestions on good ones, light ones and where online to see pics/order them. I live in NYC so there are a tonn of bike shops here, but I'd like to know what I'm looking for before going to a store.

    Thanks,

    ~Dave

    I have Profile Design T2+ and they're fine so far... They're my first so I have nothing to compare against.

    I have the same on my roadie. They are a flatter aero bar which some may find less comfortable than the upswept handle type. I like 'em flatter What's nice is they are independent of each other and very adjustable in all planes. You may want to get a professional re-fit once you put aero's on a roadie, it helped me.

    I have a set of profile ironmans that I was going to throw away. Semireasonable, carbon and all, I was given a set of integrated bars so out these go. Yours if you pick them up - I work in the city (Time Square), let me know in advance so I'll take them to work with me.

    +1 for these aerobars. I have them on my road bike but they're also my first aerobars. But their price and adjustibility just can't be beat.
