Last week I installed the new drop bar ends. They are fine, but the geometry of the bike seems to be all out of whack now. After riding about 100 miles with them so far, I am getting pains in my mid back and then between my shoulder blades ( I didn't have these issues before). I definitely like having the drop position as the shores of Lake Tahoe tend to get quite breezy almost every single afternoon so they help with my commute. I am thinking of doing a full drop conversion. Is this something that can be accomplished on my 2012 Trek 7.6? Also, how much shoud I expect to spend on something like this?
Another thought I had was to get a smaller handlebar and then put on the drop bar ends. The LBS put them on my stock IsoZone bar, which is about 600 mm. Will a smaller bar help with my issues?
