|Aerobars...for the last time!||pedalinbob|

|sorry to beat this subject to death, but i think i am finally ready to purchase a set of aerobars for my road bike. i really think the extra position will allow some extra comfort on long rides (i sometimes will set my forearms directly on the tops for a couple of miles).
i am looking at:
profile aerolite: strong design, adjustable, heavy at 700g.
profile airstryke 2000: adjustable, 540g.
syntace c2 ultralite: light--366g! unsure about adjustability... unusual armrests--put your forearms behind the bar...
syntace streamliner: similar to above, 460g.
i am light--135lb, and ride in MI...
any suggestions are welcome!

|These are great bars. The arm rests are adjustable in and out, and if you want to raise them, risers are available. They also come in a cool box that is used in the set up. And, the icing on the cake, they come with a yo yo to use as a plumb bob.|

|Either Syntace model would be ok. Profiles on the other hand suck. I had two pairs and had nothing but problems with them. Oh the Syntaces are also great because they mount right near the stem.|

|Used to have RCO Scott clipons, but switched to the Syntace C2 they are really light, adjustability is good, foearms behind the bar not uncomfortable, gives your arms more suport instead of having the support on your fore arm.
Go for the C2

|I have 2 bikes with Airstrykes on them. They're very comfortable and stable. I like that the elbow cups get out of your dad'burn way when not in use.|

|I have the airstryke on my bike as well, I've been very happy with them. (plus they cost a lot less then syntace) I too like the way they stay out of the way when not using them.|

|I tried 'em and hated the compromise of control I got. Miserable for anything but reducing wind resistance. Can't get to shifters or brakes quickly-use carefully in traffic. I found zero utility in increasing comfort too. Just thought you might want to consider because you said you were getting them for comfort.|

I found this on a bulletin board and decided to try it. A little while back, I was
browsing through newsgroups, just like you are now, and came across an article
similar to this that said you could make thousands of dollars within weeks with only an initial investment of $6.00! So I thought, "Yeah right, this must be a scam", but like most of us, I was curious, so I kept reading. Anyway, it said that you send $1.00 to each of the 6 names and address stated in the article. You then place your own name and address in the bottom of the list at #6, and post the article in at least 200 newsgroups. (There are thousands) No catch, that was it. So after thinking it over, and talking to a few people first, I thought about trying it.I figured: "what have I got to lose except 6 stamps and $6.00, right?" Then I invested the measly $6.00. Well GUESS WHAT!?... within 7 days, I started getting money in the mail! I was shocked! I figured it would end soon, but the money just kept coming in. In my first week, I made about $25.00. By the end of the second week I had made a total of over $1,000.00! In the third week I had over $10,000.00 and it's still growing. This is now my fourth week and I have made a total of just over $42,000.00 and it's still coming in rapidly. It's certainly worth $6.00, and 6 stamps, I have spent more than that on the lottery!! Let me tell you how this works and most importantly, WHY it works... Also, make sure you print a copy of this article NOW, so you can get the information off of it as you need it. I promise you that if you follow the directions exactly, that you will start making more money than you thought possible by doing something so easy!
: Suggestion: Read this entire message carefully! (print it out or download it.)
Follow the simple directions and watch the money come in!
: It's easy. It's legal. And, your investment is only $6.00.
: IMPORTANT: This is not a rip-off; it is not indecent; it is not illegal; and it is 99%
no risk - it really works!
: If all of the following instructions are adhered to, you will receive extraordinary
: PLEASE NOTE:
: Please follow these directions EXACTLY, and $50,000 or more or more can be yours in 20 to 60 days. This program remains successful because of the honesty and integrity of the participants. Please continue its success by carefully adhering to the instructions.
: You will now become part of the Mail Order business. In this business your product is not solid and tangible, it's a service. You are in the business of developing Mailing Lists. Many large corporations are happy to pay big bucks for quality lists. However, the money made from the mailing lists is secondary to the income which is made from people like you and me asking to be included in that list.
: Here are the 4 easy steps to success:
: STEP 1: Get 6 separate pieces of paper and write the following on each piece of paper "PLEASE PUT ME ON YOUR MAILING LIST." Now get 6 US $1.00 bills and place ONE inside EACH of the 6 pieces of paper so the bill will not be seen through the envelope (to prevent thievery). Next, place one paper in each of the 6 envelopes and seal them. You should now
have 6 sealed envelopes, each with a piece of paper stating the above phrase, your name and address, and a $1.00 bill. What you are doing is creating a service. THIS IS ABSOLUTELY LEGAL! You are requesting a legitimate service and you are paying for it! Like most of us I was a little skeptical and a little worried about the legal
aspects of it all. So I checked it out with the U.S. Post Office (1-800-725-2161) and they confirmed that it is indeed legal. Mail the 6 envelopes to the following

: STEP 2: Now take the #1 name off the list that you see above, move
: the other names up (6 becomes 5, 5 becomes 4, etc...) and add YOUR
: Name as number 6 on the list.
: STEP 3: Change anything you need to, but try to keep this article as close to
original as possible.
Now, post your amended article to at least 200 newsgroups. (I think there are close
groups) All you need is 200, but remember, the more you post, the more money
you make! You won't get very much unless you post like crazy.
: This is perfectly legal! If you have any doubts, refer to Title 18
: Sec. 1302 & 1341 of the Postal lottery laws.
: Keep a copy of these steps for yourself and, whenever you need money,
: you can use it again, and again.
: PLEASE REMEMBER that this program remains successful because of the honesty and integrity of the participants and by their carefully adhering to the directions. Look at it this way. If you are of integrity, the program will continue and the money that so many others have received will come your way.
: NOTE: You may want to retain every name and address sent to you, either on a
computer or hard copy and keep the notes people send you. This VERIFIES that you are truly providing a service. (Also, it might be a good idea to wrap the $1 bill in dark paper to reduce the risk of mail theft.)
: So, as each post is downloaded and the directions carefully followed, six members will be reimbursed for their participation as a List developer with one dollar each. Your name will move up the list geometrically so that when your name reaches the #1 position you will be receiving thousands of dollars in CASH!!! What an opportunity for only $6.00 ($1.00 for each of the first six people listed above) Send it now, add your own name to the list and you're in business!
