to answer this and the other thread you started in the fitting to your bike heading..
with setback , increased (seat tube angle lower, and seatpost with clamp well behind the tube Centerline )
you shift the body weigh on the saddle , off the hands..
so look at the whole setup and consider a more upright posture.. Typical Sus Forks only react to big hits..
not road buzz.
so maybe a cruiser bike with pull back bend bars.. something Dutchy. its becoming cool in the US , now..
I have figure 8 bend trekking bars , they too offer multiple hand positions,
though rather than the Up/Down of drop bars , the set-up is Near/Far.. reach
and you can thickly pad them with multiple padded tape wraps..
my setup is such that the bars are higher than the saddle.
