I use the hoods much of the time and the drops when its into the wind or a descent. No problems with feeling cramped or scrunched up when I am in either, I bend forward from my pelvis/hips, my back is pretty much straight and very comfortable for me. I don't recall staring at my front wheel at all. With the recent winds we have had the drops or hoods help out and dropping down one gear if its blowing head on lets me keep my cadence in a power producing range. Checking my average speeds, the are holding up well, which surprised me.
Tigat, as much as you have overcome I look up to you and your accomplishments, well done, sir, well done.
