Drops don't work for me because of arthritis in the neck and collarbones. I need to sit up a little more than most of the stock touring sets I've seen. The Trek 520 I just bought came with a set of Modolo 'Brevatatto' drop bars (sounds like ordering a coffee in Seattle). It has good brake levers that I want to keep and they will work with mustache bars.
Anyone had experience with longer rides using these things? Thanks.
