Aero road bike

What do I need to do to make my aero road bike less aggressive and more like a regular road bike

Buy a less aggressive, more regular road bike. Seriously, you bought the wrong bike unless you are a serious time trial rider.

A little hint here. Which bike? Time trial bikes don't convert well to regular road bikes.

Keep it , 2 more bikes and you have achieved N . Haha no really I feel your pain , my first TT bike was fairly twitchy to ride especially at low speed . It had a way of making me pay attention . RE : # 12 http://www.velominati.com/the-rules/
Here is a file photo of my Stealth BP TT https://www.google.com/search?q=Stea...Jdolg6JFjlM%3A
