Default Mounting Aerobars on Bike

Let's be sensible.

You DO NOT want aerobars to slip during use. Period!

Any use of rubber, plastic, bar tape, etc under the clamps is just asking for
trouble.

You can have a lot of leverage with aerobars and hitting an unexpected bump can
put a lot of load just where the bars are clamped. If they slip, it can spell
disaster.

Ideally, the aerobars should fit well enough and be tightened enough that you
literally can't move the bars up and down where you grab them at the ends
