Want to Ride 1 mph Faster?
Use aero bars. One mile per hour is about how much faster an average cyclist will gain simply from using aero-bars. Follow these tips to get the most out of your new setup.
First make sure your position is set up correctly for using aero bars. See a professional bike fitter to help you set them up.
Take your time to get accustomed to riding in an aero position. Your bike will be a little more difficult to handle.
Think of steering from your elbows. Keep a loose grip on the bars and steer from your elbows
Avoid Using Aero Bars on a Group Ride
When in the aero position your hands are away from your brakes and you wont be able to react as quick slow downs in the group.
