My bike came with 420mm wide dropbar which I've always felt too wide for me.

I used to ride in the drops most of the time until I learned from another thread you can angle the hoods inwards which placed my hands closer together when holding the hoods as if riding with narrower handlebars.

I've never used the drops ever since. The inward angled hoods is just too comfortable to not ride in it all the time. Perhaps that might change if I managed to find a suitable and cheap 380mm alloy dropbar for my bike.
