My wife does triathlons. I've done a few, but she is more into it than me. It was time to equippe her road bike wit all the "Aero-geek" accouterments. Bernie at Trinity Bicycles hooked her up with a Syntace base bar, some cane aero levers, Syntace aero-bars and Dura-Ace ten speed shifters. She says that the setup is very comfortable and I think she feels faster. I haven't gone on a ride with her to see if she is indeed faster but the bike does look like it is.
