    Are there any problems (other than shifting inconvenience) with using STI shifter/levers on aero
    base bars? I'm thinking of converting my road bike to TT with a set of visiontech (or similar)
    aerobars and didn't want to get bar-end shifters.

    Thanks.

    Distance from the lever to the bars is small and you may have the lever hit the bar when braking,
    before the brakes stop ya...
