Back when I was using my Franken-bike, I was using fold-down aerobars (the kind that spring upright when not in use). When down, they rested on the handlebars and made little gouges. Then, I wasn't worried, since you can't hurt a tank.
With the new bike, I'm leery of using these - I don't want to scratch the pretty paint, you know?
I'm wondering if any of you with the same type of aerobars pad them in any way to prevent this gouging, or do you just live with it?
