Just wondering if anyone has advice or hints and tips on doing a time trial without aero bars.
I am competing in a series of Time Trial races, but do not have aerobars. Is it more aerodynamic to have your hands in the drops and be as low as possible or have your hands in the centre of the bars, again as low as possible?
Any other recommendations or advice would be much appreciated!
I have heard many different quotes for how much time aero overshoes save in a TT, everything from nothing to 20 seconds. I am sceptical. Having used overshoes for the last two years, I havent used them for my last two races and posted two massive PBs.
It might just be some weird mindset I have going on, but I really dont like the way they look - for reference I had some £20 PRO overshoes which I have seen numerous top riders using.
For sale, a little piece of Campagnolo history. One set of very good condition used Delta Brakes.
Bought for a retro build never completed would look stunning on a steel bianchi or colnago or even on a TT bike as they have a nice aero profile.
small bit of polish/ rub ,mark on the rear brake but otherwise very good condition. All rubber seals intact and brake shoes with lots of life left.
Comes with 3.5mm allen key for servicing.
£100 plus postage (around £5 -£ 8)

Ok, I am out of my depth. I have signed up for my cycling clubs ten mile Time Trial, having never done any trialling against time. I have no idea what training to do, bike to use, time to aim for, bike set up to deploy, what to wear... AGHHHH
Don't all be shy... Who are the best TT'S left in the race then? Everyone is going to ask at some point so I might aswell be first. I'll show you mine if you show me yours!(plan that is).
