    any better aero bar for my p3 than syntace streamliner??

    I was curious if anyone had any suggestions for maybe a little bit better aero bar. than my sytace streamliners that came with my 04 p3. Which are pretty basic and sell for a hundred dollars. I used them the other day. I noticed the other day that towards the end of a 40-mile ride, my wrists were a little sore. I know most of the arrow bars slant up at the end and my wrist s are cocked up. Maybe I should try some arrow bars that are straight out and donít tip up, but there is probably not too many of those to select from. What about a profile design Carbon X bar? Maybe that could work. It may be too flexible when I am climbing the hills. Maybe I wouldnít like it. I donít climb a lot of hills, but I was curious on what your suggestion might be for a little bit better of an arrow bar that I might be pleased with. Maybe I should try the easton attack arrow bar.

    i would take it to your local tri shop and tell them the problem you're having, it may simply be a fitting issue. i say this because most straight bars cause more stress/discomfort in the wrists due to the fact that your hand has to tilt more sharply down to grip the bars, the upward tilt at the end is to return the wrist from a downward tilted angle(like that on straight aero bars) so that the wrist is at a more natural angle. maybe different height elbow rests or something would help line up your arm and wrist better, but i don't know much about those specific bars, just an idea. check these out http://www.all3sports.com/Category/CategoryID/10

    I like the syntace C2's they do curve up at the end, but unlike the streamliners they have a curve in the middle giving you a couple hand position options. I'm usually positioned in the curve and am pretty comfortable. Only a little more expensive than the streamliner. There are some reviews on trifuel,

    There's also the new HED s-bend that lance road. slighter upward angle so maybe easier on your wrists. http://gear.trifuel.com/product/375.php

    anyway you can spend anywhere from $50 to $500 on aerobars, so go to the LBS and get a feel for what you think is comfortable.

    I have the Profile Carbon X. They have been comfortable for me. I haven't noticed any flexing. They are pretty solid.
