Rated 5 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent addition to many bikes, not only triathlon This type of aero extension was very popular in the pro road racing pelotons of the early '90s... Cinellii's Spinaci bar. But the UCI quickly banned Spinacis for obvious reasons and for some reason recreational riders stopped using them too. They Deda Metal Blasts weigh under 1lb, and in most conditions add 1-1.5mph of speed in the 17-23mph range - without any additional heart beats. Great for gran fondos and centuries, just be sure to use them only when you're on the front. If you use them when drafting, just make sure the riders ahead know you're doing so, and give yourself another foot or so of room. Even so, your risk level increases quite a bit if drafting with these bars. The fact is, though, you're unlikely to spend a lot of time in the aero position. The support pad goes just behind the wrist, and because of this there is a lot more strain on the bones and upper arm muscles than with full aero bars. They quickly become uncomfortable. It takes a few hours of use to condition your arms and core muscles to stay in the aero tuck longer than five minutes. I have found about 15 minutes the longest I can go without a break. This works out fairly well for the terrain of coastal Northern California. I would probably still use them for flatter inland rides too, since on a long ride they offer a different position and increase the overall average speed. It takes about five minutes to mount and unmount these bars, so it's easy to remove them for a very hilly ride with no flat sections. I have had them on my adventure bike, so lots of off-road miles. About 2,000 miles so far and the pads are still good. I notice that the up-scale carbon model comes without foam pads. I would recommend using these bars with foam pads, for comfort reasons, and I might even add a thin layer of dense padding to what I have already. 09 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bella e funzionale. PRO: estetica ottima, impatta pochissimo sulle linee della bici e sulla possibilità di impugnare il manubrio anche nella parte alta. Non ostacola la collocazione del ciclocomputer sulla pipa. Posizione efficace con discreta guidabilità. CONTRO: rispetto ad una piega da cronometro tradizionale (più lunga) tende ad affaticare di più le braccia. Non consente posizioni estreme in punta di sella o molto allungate. Consigliata a chi vuole aggiungere una posizione in più (aerodinamicamente molto vantaggiosa) alle possibili impugnature del manubrio, non a chi vuole una bici "da crono". 15 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Light and strong these are great Aero bars, they are light, stiff, compact, great for drafting tri's! Too small for non-drafting races but I think one of the best Aero bars for short course triathlon and not that expensive. 05 August 2013

Answers

Answer: 
These bars are not intended for use with gears and due to the ITU rule conformity that these bars comply to; the following are apparent:

Short/Stubby Bar
Central Bridge at Bar End
No Shifters on the Aero Bars
and
Must be mounted on Drop Bars.

Answers

Answer: 
The bar in question that you want to fit this Aero-Bar, is not shaped appropriately for mounting clip on bars. You need to look at other handlebars that have a more uniform circular section in either side of the stem clamp area.
You should try something like this - http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/...
