Is it a good idea for different hand positions on a commuter w/ flat bars? Probably a no no to the fashion police, but that's their opinion. What do you guys think?

It's not a mtn bike, it's practically a road bike w/ a flat bar. It's easier to ride around w/ a flat bar in city traffic, keeps your head up!!!bikerjulio said:if you want to go fast get a road bike. big fngh guys on big fgng mountain bikes with areo bars commuting are a total joke. there, my hate over for the day.
A couple of minutes on a 10 mile commute? Aw, come on now.Lelandjt said:Well "commuter bike" and route obviously vary but on the road bike I used for a 10mi commute on fast roads adding an aero bar knocked a couple minutes off my time and made it more comfortable.
Triathletes are just swimmers/cyclists/runners with attention deficit disorder. Don't hate on us just because we are compelled to add additional sports to our cycling experience.Minjin said:And you certainly wouldn't want to associate with those people...
I always rode as fast as I could, treating it like a time trial. This was 15 years ago so memory is foggy but when I put the aero bars on I believe I shaved 1:30+ off my time. I think I was doing just over 20 minutes. I was a ripper junior racer, set a record up Mt. Washington.dolomoto said:A couple of minutes on a 10 mile commute? Aw, come on now.
Are you comparing riding in the aero bars with being upright? or down in the drops?
