Aero Bars on FATBIKE

I am planning to install Aero Bars on my FAT bike.
Aero Bars are supposed to provide enough comfort for long rides i.e 100+ kms.
Any FAT BIKE user here who has already installed AERO BARS on his/her FATBIKE who can give me review about its use?

I don't ride a fatbike, but I do have aerobars on my wider-tired "go anywhere" bike, where I use them as an additional hand position, not explicitly for speed. Having said that, I would recommend something like Profile Design Airstryke II. The flip-up armrests are excellent, and the ability to add riser blocks anywhere from 5-70mm tall means you can adjust the height of the rests to best suit your riding position. I absolutely love mine, and use them on every single ride.

Also an excellent place to hang your helmet.

Nope, you'd be better off with a set of touring bars, Jones, Moloko, VO Crazy Bars

Aero bars on a fat bike are incongruent with MY fatty's intended use, but do what you want to if it works for you. To my mind, putting aero bars on a fat bike is like putting wings on a John Deere.
