Rereading this morning; this comment stood out - and was referenced by a couple of others too - as I'm wondering why it's ridiculous? If Jamie is on a limited budget, even if he bought new, an aero helmet is much less cost than clip less peddles and bike shoes by about half and perhaps gains a greater power transfer/saving benefit (I don't have any data on that, it might be less but it's still significant). That's what I'd do too, actually.
Its hard for me to come up with an answer for this one because I don't know any serious riders who aren't clipless. Do you remember going clipless and how much it changed how you ride? Can you imagine charging over a hill or riding out of the saddle without clipless?
