As an experiment, I wonder if it would be more comfortable with a shorter stem? You wouldn't have to reach so far with a shorter stem. On my bike, I found it became more comfortable when I flipped the stem over and I gained about an inch of height.

I do most of my riding with my hands on the top of the bars and almost never use the drops. Speaking just for myself, I generally find the normal flatbar/mountain bike style position too wide. But that may just be because of what I am used to.
