I ride Nitto b123's. I find my hands are mostly on stem and shoulders, but regularly use the drops. It's the first time I've used non-flat/riser bars, so I'm really happy that I've made the conversion.
I want to ask if people think there's correct hand placement whilst in the drops? I tend to have my hands near the front of the bar, on the curve - this feels good and stable. It feels great, so I'm assuming it's fine, but there's a hell of a lot of bar left towards the rear (the flat part). What's that bit for?
Hope it makes sense.
