    Best bang-for-the-buck aerobars

    I'm working on piecing together a triathlon bike from an old frame and spare parts. I'm looking for a good set of quality aerobars that won't break the bank.

    PZ Racing sells a set (AE 5.0 ) thats often available on ebay for around 80 Bucks. They are adjustable, but probably weigh a little more than other brands, but who cares they do the job and aren't that heavy.

    I found two pair at the local bike co-op and picked out the best one for free since I'm a volunteer. So I'd say free aero bars that fit you and the bike are the best bang-for-the-buck.

    I would look at ebay, lots of good used deals or something new that fits your price range. It's all there, especially if you're not a volunteer at Enthusiast's co-op.

    So, you want a realistic, down-to-earth show... that's completely off-the-wall and swarming with magic robots?

    A Freudian slip is when you say one thing, but mean your mother.

    Aerus C4TT bars you can get around $100
    for an integrated bar i would say they are the best cheap-o option. Nice and stiff, fairly light, very adjustable.
