im just getting into triathlons, and have the high school cross country and swim seasons ahead of me, so I have a bit of time before I can race again, so on my own ive started working on the bike leg a little more.
IT will be a while before I can afford the Litespeed saber I have my eye on, so im making good use of my felt road bike.
im not really concerned with modifiying the geometry of my bike too much, because Ive seen Hunter Kemper racing on a Orbea Orca road bike. but taking a close look at some of his pictures, I noticed his aero bars were awful short, ive had some trouble figuring the exact bars he uses on his road bike, but they look similar in length to the profile design T2 + DL, thats why i settled on that idea. I think with standard length road bars I would have to lean much too far forward, putting alot of strain and discomfort on my lower back, this could probably be fixed with a "profile design fast forward seat post" and a shorter stem. but I think I will mimic a pro, and go with a shorter aero bar. because like you said.. I gotta work on my "motor", and i figure that would be the best fix for the money and effort
what did you do to convert your bike to a "steeper geometry"?
