Jason X Posted March 23, 2010 Share Posted March 23, 2010 When you TT without aero bars do you stay in the drops or the hoods and duck, or do you rest your (underneath) forearms on the tops of the bars? I did that on a crit breakaway one day and it seemed to work super well. I was away solo for 11 laps...then another 6 after I got caught and re-attacked... Try that. It's fun, but you'll need to toughen up your forearms if you haven't already. (note, this will rely on a high strong cadence, you won't be able to push.push.push.push the pedals because you have nothing to drive down with from your upper body. BUT, if you spin.spin.spin.spin your pedals this is a non-issue.) YAY more bike people! (This is unsolicited advice/tip. Feel free to use it or not, and also feel free to tell me to shove off if that's your prerogative. I won't take it personally.) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
