Aero bar questionsJoshua

I posted a similar post in the general topics. I am considering picking up a pair of syntace c2 aero bars. I currently have set of profile airstrykes that I just cant get comfy with. I have been experimenting with them since the summer and have had no luck. I have heard good things about the syntace bars and I intend to use them in a series of local time trials. oes any one have any other suggestions?

Thanks

which part of the airstrykes are you having problems with?

It seems like no matter how I adjust them my arms still feel like they are going to slide out of the arm rests.

forward? backward? sides?

forward or back would sound to me like an aero-fit issue. Sides would sound like a bar spacing issue.

I'm guessing you're talking about your arms sliding outward. Swap the pads for the F-18 pads that have more of a lip outboard. This is a common complaint againts Profile bars, and the F-18s almost always take care of the problem.

That is exactly whats happening. My arms are sliding off of the arm rests to the outside. I will try the f-18 cups. Thanks for the info.

Consider the F-19 arm rest cups. They have an additional degree of adjustability.
