Specialized Venge Tri/Aero Bars

I have a 2016 Specialized Venge that has some beautiful s-works aero handlebars, however, there are no tri/aero bar clamps i can find which fit onto them because of their oblong aero shape.

Does anyone know of anyone making the right size clamps or some other solution if i want to fit tri/aero bars? Are there any custom aftermarket clamp makers?

Cheers,
Nic

    What do you want the Tri bars for ?

    Your venge isn't the right geometry for Tri bars. You could buy a decent second hand TT bike for not a huge amount of money.
  • For a one off multi sport race where tri-bars would be quite helpful. I'd rather not buy a new bike, even if geometry isn't perfect on the Venge.

    In that case I'd just ride without the Tri bars. Carbon doesn't like being clamped unless it's designed for it.
  • Diplodicus - apparently not, they only work for the Venge Vias - which the 2016 model is not.

    not worth just getting some cheap ali bars to mount the tri bars as its a one off event?

    once taped up and tri barred up no one will notice they aren't the standard bar and they won't snap and give you dead disease.
