I'm sure this question has been asked before but I couldn't find a good answer in the search results:
I have a 2003 Litespeed Ultimate that I want to convert into as aggresive and aero a position as possible for a single race. I am renting Aero wheels, I bought an Aero helmet, and I'm going to add Aero bars ... my question ... how Aero can I get my position, and what am I sacrificing versus a proper Tri bike? I plan to go to the local tri shop for a proper fitting of the bars and seat and possibly get a forward tilting seatpost.
I should add that I ran only aero bars last year, bike about 7-10 hrs a week, and hardly ever get out of the bottom of the drops.
