Aero savingsHow much time could you save on a 40km bike leg by gradually upgrading your bike with aerodynamic kit? If your average triathlete takes 75-80mins using a normal aluminium frame with standard 32-spoke rims, integrated brake/gear levers, downtube mounted bottle, vented helmet and wearing a T-shirt and shorts, here’s how much…Aerobars These will bring you forward and drop you into an aero tuck with a flatter back and narrow elbows. Time saved 3-5mins ...
Some remove the saddle, rotate the post 180deg so the clamp faces forward (and refit the saddle) as this will give a steeper angle from about 74deg to about 76deg which helps with the aero tuck and also helps reduce jelly legs at the start of the run. Best to get advice from a tri club about that but here is a good article, it is quite technical so best to take your time reading it:http://www.slowtwitch.com/mainheadings/ ... kefit.html
One thing to consider too is that if you get those, then you cant use an aero drinks bottle on it.
