You can set the bar on a drop bar set up so the top is in the same position it would be on a flat bar bike, then you could have the best of both.

You shouldn't ride with your elbows locked or your arms straight. You should be able to ride with light pressure on the bar and your elbows relaxed. This requires core strength and isn't as easy when you get tired, but it's worth working on.

For some of us conventional fit doesn't work and we may have to spend time finding our position.
