hello,

which aero bar will work best with a road bike set up with the low 70's seat tube angle? i ve thought i remember seeing somewhere that some aero bars dont work/fit very well on a road bike set up.

i am starting my TT bike project one piece at a time. i know nothing about TT bike set up. SO i might be asking a lot of questions. i hope it doesnt bother anyone seeing my name pop up all over the place on the very helpful board!

thanks,

gall

... I use Profile Carbon Strykes, but 'pert near any set that will allow you a range of adjustments should do.

I'd avoid integrated sets unless you're absolutely sure about your position.

reach adjustment is a must. I've looked at carbon Stryke and then went with AirStryke 2000. A bit heavier, still cheaper and flip up armrests are very nice free tops for climbing.

Also sometimes if you need short reach on low spacer stack unused aerobars at the back may interfere with headset. Al easy to cut down to proper length good luck

If you ride with your hands on the bartops at all, the flip-up armrests do give you the realestate to do it. Also, you can cut off the ends of the flip-up arms if you have placed the armpads in the inside holes so they wont be in the way.
