@Paul, at one point you had butterfly trekking bars which you seemed to like for the variety of hand positions, but then you gave those up and at some point installed drop bars (if I'm reading your Swift history correctly). Can you comment about what you liked/disliked about the trekking bars and what is working for you with the drop bars? Also, I noticed that at one point you had an arrangement similar to the one I'm contemplating--the stock bar with ski bar ends. (I would do same but with slightly longer bar--540 mm.) Can you comment on this arrangement? I have a nasty hill on my commute and I'm thinking the ski bar ends would help when I need to stand and mash my way to the top in granny gear.
