Elia Viviani disagree with you, and i agree with him.Mr.Gib wrote: ↑Fri May 17, 2019 3:57 pmI do find it strange that people who are concerned about the aerodynamics of their position often set their bars so low that they can barely use the drops. You should be able to ride on the drops indefinitely in reasonable comfort. That's what the drops are for. And when it comes to aero, don't forget that your elbows also bend.
If drop is sustainable all day long, would that make hood position useless?
If you set your drop so high that you can be in drop all day long then what do you do when you want to get extra aero or extra stable handling of low center of gravity?
Why not setting the hood to where you can sustain all day long, and drop low enough that it give you lowest center of gravity, and most aero when you need it.
Elbow bend on hood for surge (aero, with less stability).
Straight down arm in drop for tight control (like descend). Sustainable-ish, but may not for the whole ride.
Elbow bend in drop for actual sprint.
Otherwise, stay on hood. It's default sustainable position.
