Aerobars with an Ortlieb Ultimate 4
« on: April 23, 2007, 10:05:49 am »
Anyone have suggestions for aerobars to use on my C2C venture? Not look'n to get too aero ... just rest my shoulders.  I need them to work with my Ortleib 4 and 31.8 road bars.  I believe I would also like the flip-up pads to offer a varity of hand positions.

Thanks, Mike

Syntace aerobars have lifters as an option.  Raise the height of the bars 1 inch.  This might allow a bit more room underneath for the handlebar bag.  As for flip up pads, nice.  But for people using the Syntace bars, no flip up pads, they just put their palms over the top of the forearm pads and seem to ride just fine.  There are special handlebar bags that work specifically on aero bars.  You might want to, have to, use these instead of the traditional Ortleib handlebag bag.  Aero bar bags are not as big but I don't think you need lots of stuff right in front of you while riding.  Place for a map holder, some food, wallet, small camera.
