Yes, good input.

Besides resting, I’ll also use them sometimes to tuck into headwinds or get into a sustained climbing position. I have aero bars on my other road bike with drop bars.

Guys, good intentions I’m sure but that design is a tangential discussion for drop bars at best and not a solution for my (flat) Moloko bars. I added a pic to my OP to illustrate.
