- Roadie Content: Bolt-on tri bars – Advice needed for novice
Maybe wrong forum but here goes:
I am planning my local club 10m TT. Standard bike, so plan to fit bolt on TT bars, nothing expensive just to see if I take to it or not.
But there seems to be a few bar shape variations. Which of THESE is best for a novice like myself.
Think I would prefer to straight? Unfortunately I dont have the option to try first, hence the post. Cheers STW.Posted 7 years agopushbikeriderMember
I’d say the ‘J’ shape (middle pair) the flat one’s hold your wrist at a rather sharp angle which can get uncomfortable. You should find the slight angle to hold on to the most comfy for starters.Posted 7 years ago
Do get some practice in first though before you race on them as tri bars take a bit of getting used to.
You might also want to try lowering your bars/going for a shorter stem/bringing your saddle forward as well to get a better position to use them – good luck!GordymacMember
Ek I’ve just bought some unos myself. Looked in to it and the straight and s bend ones look as though they would make your wrists over extend if you know what I mean. The unos surely give the most natural wrist position.
Once my ones arrive you are more than welcome to try them out.

I would also say the middle ones. I would also have a look on http://www.tririg.com as they had a pretty good article about extensions and setup. Here in fact http://www.tririg.com/articles.php?id=2011_05_20_Extension_StudyPosted 7 years ago
