How tall are you? And do you have longer legs or a longer torso? What’s your inseam length? Unless you’re riding a time trial bike, or you have freakishly long legs for your height, you shouldn’t have that much seatpost. I think it’s pretty likely that your frame is several sizes too small for you and you’re likely putting far too much of your body weight forward onto your bars. I’m not really sure why you want to spend most of your time in the drops, unless all you’re doing is sprinting, but I wouldn’t recommend this. If you insist, I would insist on getting bars with more shallow drops. But honestly, I think you need to be looking for a larger frame. I’m sure that’s not what you’d like to hear, but I’d have a real hard time believing that’s not your primary issue.
