I have a old road bike which I brought second hand and almost immediately fitted aerobars I use them all the time, 70-80% of every ride (sit up for hills when I have to) and all of the time on the turbo. I've had a fit and made my position as aggressive as the bike will allow. I train how I intend to race, down on the aeros as much as possible. I'm seriously considering buying a TT bike but everyone seems to have them as a race only bike am I missing something. If I got one I'd do all my turbo sessions on it (twice a week in winter) and all long rides unless it was wet (only 4-5 this year as I'm very flexible on training times/days) I'd want to be fit and comfortable in the position I'd be in on race day am I missing something?
