The AL should be farmilar to some, but not at $300 or less. The Cabon is new and should retail at $500ish. The new stack height is 50mm with 2 bolts not the previous 3.

But seriously,
They look nice. How do the AL ones hold up? Is it racing only or is it something you can train on daily for a few years?

I am going to be putting together a TT / training bike and a good reliable set of bars are on the top of the list.

4. Put together a good solid TT bike from cheap parts or find a cheap one on ebay

These do not qualify as cheap parts... ;?{)

What do you need a tt-training bike for?

Like saying I need a light weight italian racing bike, for touring.

You TT on you TT bike or road bike set up to kick ___. You train on your training bike, if you want aero bars then just get a clip on for your training bike. I don't know anyone that has a full on aero tt bike to train on, it makes no sense who are you trying to beat on your tt training rides, the whole point is to get stronger riding, if you need the aero position then get a clip on, they are more than durable and cheap.

We have several world class trialelets at live in our area and all of them, yes, all of them us a standard road bike for training. The use their TT rig for local TT and Tri racing.

Also, last note...these vision bars have a warentee just like everything else in the industry...they can't even be sold without passing certain saftey checks, if they break, you get new ones. Just don't get on ebay(no warentee)
