On my riser bars I'm leaning slightly forward, and can get slightly more aerodynamic by holding the bar on the lower middle section. Is this possible/how do you deal with wind on north road bars? I suppose I can always sit on the rear rack...
Unless you can lay flat you will always have wind to fight on a bike. That said, I sit bolt upright due to health concerns and just shift down one of two and keep on trucking. Buy the bars you want that make you comfortable while riding and don't worry about it since nobody is going to fast enough to leave the planet anyway!
My preferred bicycle brand is.......WORKSMAN CYCLES
I dislike clipless pedals on any city bike since I feel they are unsafe.
