For years I refrained from training or racing when I had a heavy cold. Nowadays I ignore the symptoms and go for it. I figure that you'll find out soon enough if you're up for it. Usually with a bad cold, you can feel a bit uncomfortable, specially with hard breathing, but you may only get a slight drop in performance. One question I ask myself is: would I go to work? If the answer is yes, then I go training/racing too. see conversation

I have a bike set up w/ some Easton EC90 SLX Carbon bars. I fitted some Profile Design T2 Plus DL Aerobars that are draft-legal, by clamping them really close to the stem. Ideally you want your aerobar clamps to almost touch your stem clamp, like that you're sure that you're using the reinforced section on the drop bars. Obviously you need to respect the proper torque for installing carbon bars. I've had this setup for over a year, with plenty of bumpy miles and lots of use and no problems. Hope this helps!

BTW, when I googled this same problem, I found that practically everyone says this is a no-no. But then I found a technical FAQ for my bars, and discovered you can clamp clip-ons onto them, as long as you do it on the reinforced clamping section. Makes sense!
