We will identify two primary problems with installing clip-onbars on our road bikes. First, when fitting them on standard road drop bars fora triathlon or time trial, we on a regular basis have to install a straight seatpost orslam the saddle forward to compensate for the extensions being further forward.Second, the armrests on a regular basis cover the tops of the bar, leading to the dreadedhands on the pad technique on steeper climbs. The Airstryke V2 Aluminum Clip-onAerobars deal with the second one issue by including Profile Design’s patentedFlip-Up brackets, which use springs to keep the armrests elevated at the same time as you’renot resting on them. This preserves access to your drop bar’s top or the entirebase bar without sacrificing the advantages of clip-on extensions when it’s timeto get aero. As for the cockpit adjustments, we recommend making an investment in a secondsaddle/seatpost combo if it’s not a proprietary design and you’ll be able to have a quickas a very easy dedicated setup for triathlons, time trials, and weekend omniums.
