looking to buy an aerobar.

i'm considering the syntace c2 ultralite. is it worth the $$?

what about some of the other ones in market, like the syntace streamliner, profile aerobars, or the cheaper single bar clips (with no pads)

thanks
Have you considered Cinelli options?Red Ascent

The Cinelli Angel is a great time-trial type bar, and if you don't want to go that extreme, you can get Cinelli's Spinaci clip-ons, or numerous other sundry options. They're gonna cost more than Syntace or Profile, but they'll last forever, too. www.cinelli.it.

I just put the Syntace on my primary bike, I like it, very comfortable, but it really limits hand positions on the handlebar.

I selected the Profile AirStryke 2000 bar because it has the flip-up arm pads. I used a Profile delta bar many years ago that didn't come with arm pads and got bone bruises on my forearms. I then rode with fixed pad aerobars but they did take up too much realestate on the bartops. The current AirStryke isn't quite what I would design, but it seems like a better alternative than the others.

... I like Profile's Carbon Strykes...

There not particularily cutting edge or light (though they look the part) and while they've suffered from recall notices for the forearm rests in the past... Profile has been quick to remedy the situation (they sent me four sets of refit rests gratis by express mail).

I've used Syntace Ultra Lites, but still prefer the Carbon Strykes... they work for me.
