Handle Bars which kind.   I curently use Aero I handle bars.  However, I have  
noticed that increasingly many riders are going to "bull horn" style bars with  
clip on areos.   Also, many Areo I riders are going to standard drops with clip  
on areos.   My question is which is better and why?   Are drops better than  
bull horn, what about the Areo III (one piece bull horn clipon areo)...and etc?

I am also thinking of going to clip-on bars on my new racing bike.
I ride with Aero II on my comuting bike, but my racing bike has
Aero I's.  (I've owned both sets of bars for several years.)

I think that riding clip-on's with bull-horns is a bad choice.  It seems that
the hand positions are identical to a full aero bar.  The reason that I am
considering the change is due to the climbing on top of the hoods.  There
is nothing like wrapping your fingers around a brake hood when you have to
climb.

 Sounds like you need the "newer than new" Aero Gymnast. The one with the
 double somersault, half twist and the pike.
 Guaranteed to turn heads, lose control and generally look like a
 really cool dude!

 But, since I've never used Aero's I wouldn't really know.
