Aerobars are freaky

I'm finally starting to use the aerobars on my tri bike. The position is very uncomfortable and kinda scary, as there are no breaks on the aerobars. I'm getting better at it, but after a fairly short time, my traps are just burning and my neck gets tired of looking forward. Not exactly a natural position. I'm trying to adjust them to maximize comfort.

Anyway, people seem to eventually get used to it, so I probably will as well although I have a feeling that I won't use them much during my first race. Gusano, from triscoop.com, bought the same bike as me and the first thing he did was to replace the aerobars. Maybe they are flawed. I'll give them a few more weeks.
