You should use the bar you like the looks of the best.

I think if you go aero then go all aero - shave legs, shave beard, work on position, narrow bars, shoe covers, tight fitting jersey, aero helmet, etc....

I like the look of both, nice slender stem and bars, and a lightweight tape, looks very clean and slender looking. But also like the look of aero handlebars, people tend to look at the Cafe, or ask about them on the odd occasion.

I wouldn't shave my legs, or face, or wear shoe coverings, but thats just me. I have tried to work on my position when pushing on the pedals, and getting lower and longer slightly.

Thanks

Riding a Cipollini is not only for the performance but for the look also. Take some nice aero stem/handlebar combo!

And if you like the look of the round handlebars buy a Colnago C60 etc... and use these then.
