deda clip-one aero bars(4 posts)

I currently use the profile jammer sl aero bar. I do not like that it takes away from my on the bar top climbing position( the brackets bother my hands). I think that the deda clip-one aero bar would solve that problem. I liked the profile bars since I did not have to change my saddle position and it gave me a nice aero position. I use the bars for tri and bialathlons(sp??) My question is on the deda bars how much adjustment is there can i get the aero bar to be about even with the brake hoods? does the bar allow for that much length adjustment??
any help would be great

They have a pretty good degree length variability. I have a set I can sell you - used just one time - I figured out that I didn't need aero bars...

I've just got a pair of the Deda Black Clip bars - the same except in carbon and find them really easy to fit and adjust. I've given up on Profile after the second pair failed - who cares about warranty when they're so badly designed and made and keep falling apart. The length on the Dedas is easily adjustable, but you may have to cut the end off the extension as it is in-line with your head tube to get a shorter reach. When cut down, you still have at least 3-4" of ajustment - depending on the length of your stem. The height is easy to adjust as you just slacken the two clamp screws on the bars to rotate. Fitting the arm rests is easy too, and because they're not needed to hold the bar on, don't need to be fitted too tightly.

... I too have just received a "pair" of Deda Clip Black aeros... and while I've yet to finish the build, they appear to have a fair amount of adjustability.

The only caveate I might add is the lack of independent adjustment for each hand/arm... I'm currently a fan of Profile Carbon Strykes... and being a bit sensitive to hand/arm position, appreciate the ability to fine tune each side. If you're happy with this static hand position, they appear to be lightweight winners.

Be the bike.
