When I wrote the above post, I didn't stop to think about all the finagling and changing things that would have to be done. Later, somebody posted in another thread, by coincidence, that it would be a lot of trouble and expense to put drops on a hybrid or mountain bike because of having to change brake levers, shifters, and cables.
So it may not be very practical, unless somebody has a lot of spare, usable parts lying around.
I do think cyclocross bikes look great and I am attracted to the durability aspect. I can show you streets in Kansas City that are the equivalent of a rough off-road trail, no exaggeration.
