I would like to buy a set of aero bars and buying them for this ride seems like a good enough excuse. I don't think I need anything fancy or expensive.

Do any of you have any recommendations for a good, basic set of aero bars? I can get the basic Bontrager set at my Trek store where I got my bike: Are there any aero bars you've particularly liked or that you would recommend that would also fit my bike?
I just hope you are planning on doing the ride solo, rather than in a pace line. In general, aero bars in a pace line make me very uneasy. A rider inexperienced with aero bars on a pace line? Seems like a very bad idea.
