Hi,

I'm buying my first set of clip-on tri bars. I'm looking at a set on Ribble from Deda. Does anyone know if they come with arm pads? From the picture it looks like they don't?

Thanks in advance

    Most do - it depends on the model. Things to look for are a low pad height i.e. pads not too high above the bars and that the pads don't overhang the back of the bars too far as you can catch your knees when out the saddle. Deda are a good reputable brand IME.
    Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..

    Thanks Monty Dog. I've just fired off an email to Ribble to confirm that the extensions come with pads. It is just that all the images of the product don't show any pads?
