I need to buy some clip on aero bars but keep seeing references to 'Draft Legal.

What does this mean and how can  I tell if a pair are legal or not?

Edited as the title should be Aero Bars, not some Poet with a chocolate fetish

I think the milk chochlate ones are draft legal aero bars but not the mint ones!!

I think that draft legal means that they can't stick out in front of the normal handle bars.  They also need to be capped in a certain way to prevent them stabbing into someone if you crash

CD IIRC its more for the pro circuit as the cheating b*ggers draft we amateurs are not allowed to so dosent really apply to us as gertie says they have to be plugged though

Thanks for the info. I was looking at some on Ebay but they shot up the  end , so after borrowing some earlier in the year( Thanks RBM) I plumped for some Deda's off Ribble Cycles(thanks again RBM)

Actually my OH bought them so now I just have to wait till xmas.  Thanks OH

Yep, don't worry about it.  Only the elites are allowed to draft so you can use any bars you like.

Shuffles, I had a lovely image of Shakespeare in a pointy helmet.

Glad two others had the same first thought as me.
