We've been doing most of our rides on the Cannondale, but took the Santana out today. It always takes a few minutes to get used to the difference! Going from the aluminum bike with straight bars to the steel bike with narrow, drop bars makes the Santana's handling seem a bit sluggish. Then we settle in and I enjoy the more compliant ride.
Being a relatively recent acquisition, we're still trying to tweak the fit of the Santana. We swapped out the saddles that the original owners used and have the tilt & height where they need to be. I think we've got it all dialed in now -- except the front bars.
The drop bars are about 2" narrower between the hoods and don't have the comfortable grip in that position that my road bike has.
So, as I contemplate swapping out the bars I'm torn between 1) different drop bars or 2) bullhorn bars. We have bar end shifters.
Any suggestions from the WOTL?
