    You would need to confirm with the manufacturer that you are allowed to clamp on aerobars. Many carbon bars you can't...

    I know, it is getting me frustrated that I need to replace them to use an aero bar.

    No round space at all either side of the stem? The clamps on my Profile aero bars are pretty narrow (less than a half inch wide, IIRC) so wouldn't need much space for installation.

    Making the body more aero offsets the amount of drag added by aeros? By about how much?

    Granted you're using them but the regular bars are just hanging in the wind then.
