I am fairly new to road cycling. Maybe about 3 months old. Anyway, as I have been slowly getting new things for my ride, the thing I like the most is the aero bars. I was struggling behind my riding partners for a few months but now I am riding right there with them and pulling my share also. Can't believe I almost didn't buy them. What is the best addition any of you have made to your bike?

You're not saying that you use the aerobars when drafting right behind someone, are you? Most people consider that dangerous.

Aerobars (when riding solo) are likely the single best performance addition you can make. Great bang for the buck. Nothing else, even a complete aero time trial bike frame and wheels, can give you as much speed increase.
