Looking at doing the Calga TT probably every month for at least the first few months of next year. So I wanted to get some Aerobars. Can anyone advise some good but also cheap bars. I would be looking at <$150 and preferably <$100.
Clip ons ok ??

The price is right, can't comment on the quality though.
These are pretty good (for the price). I've seen them elsewhere for as low as $75 delivered (so shop around). The advantage on these is that you can set them back from the drop bars (toward your body) if you wish.

They are good bars as you can adjust them a lot but are therefore a bit finicky. I have the carbon version of them. Make sure you when you adjust them you use the right torque to tighten, when I setup might I didn't have a torque wrench so was too cautious and one of them started to loosen while on a TT. You do end up putting a fair bit of weight/pressure on them.
torque settings very important, also use carbon grip paste at the junction faces
The bicycle is a curious vehicle. Its passenger is its engine.

Sorry to bring up an old thread. I am after some aero bars for an aero road bike (Venge). I am mainly after something with a fair bit of adjustability and specifically something that can accommodate the lowest possible position. On an older bike I do a fair bit of riding just resting my lower arms on the top of the standard road bars and then grabbing the shifter cables for stability and I like that position. New bike does not have gear cables to grab, so I want some aero bars that can give me the stability, but get me as close to resting my arms on the bar tops as possible. Thinking of giving a TT race a go, but not wanting to get a TT bike just yet.
Appreciate any suggestions! Those torpedo 7 bars above seem to be pretty low with the bars going under the road bar?
Thanks in advance.

Compact and safer than long jousting poles.
Get an adjustable stem for when you want to run aero bars... it is the only way to drop the bars far enough that your elbow pads sit around the same height as your bars normally would.
Only fit on 27.0 mm handlebars. You'll have to fabricate your own clamp to get them to fit modern handlebars.
I've already looked into this. Have bought a new pair from Planet-X...now have to manufacture new clamps.
Another option is if you have flat-top handlebars you can just rest your forearms on the handlebar tops and run bare extensions.
