I have read that if you buy a drop-bar bike, that you want a shorter top-tube than you would want for a flat-bar bike. My understanding is that the drops will stretch you out some, as compared to a flat-bar.
Caveat: I have not yet owned a drop-bar bike. I have been looking at them recently though.
Edit: c_m_shooter has already said the same thing. Sorry. I should have read his post more closely.
