I am a virtual novice at TTs. I rode several last year on my road bike - sometimes with a one piece Profile Design aero extension on it. Anyway, managed to secure a great price on a dedicated TT bike and just picked it up today from shop. Whooah! As detailed I'm not exactly a veteran of TTs but have a very twitchy ride on the way home and tbh spent most of it on hoods. I know it will take some practise so will find quiet roads and take it easy to start with and all that but just looking into it, someone suggested on a forum that handling suffers the closer the bars are together. When I just measured the one piece bar on my road bike, the space between the bars (where I held them) was about 9cm. On this new bike it's 5cm!!! So, put simply, purely from a handling point of view, would greater spacing between the bars improve the handling?
