If I read this correctly. You merely changed handlebars... Drops to drops or flat to flat. Also this issue did not exist with your old bars.

You may want to give the info on what shifter/derailleur and the from/to bars. It sounds like it could be a bind of the cable where it is exiting the shifter, on drop routing, due to a different handlebar curve. This should be a non-issue on flat bars.
