Aerobars: Syntace Streamliner vs. C2's(3 posts)

Aerobars: Syntace Streamliner vs. C2'shrv
Jan 24, 2002 8:17 AM
Has anyone used the Syntace Streamliner or C2 Ultralite clip on aerobars? I'm 5'11 and 15" from elbow to fist and am thinking of getting size medium. Sound about right? Are the C2's worth the extra money over the Streamliners?

There's a lot more to it than just your elbow-to-fist measurement. Are you just adding these to a normally set-up road bike? How's your hip flexibility? For most people adding clip-ons to a road bike, most of the clip-ons on the market are too long. You'll want something shorter than average. If you're adding these to a steep geometry bike (76 plus degree seat tube angle), then either of these will work. Strive for an angle of around 90 degrees between upper arms and torso. For me, that puts the pads at about mid-forearm with some pretty short aero extensions (customized), and I'm 5'11" as well.
