I ride drop bars in the city, i have a cross lever on the top, and they are angled slightly higher up then normally, I find if i angle them up a bit the pressure is spread out a bit better, meaning they are more like bullhorns. and then when there are head winds/sprints i can go to the drops.


best of both worlds. And for fitting through traffic, i have worked out how big my bag is (i carry the same thing when i commute, shoes vest and a book, so its small) and I find it is the limiting factor when cutting between cars so my bars being like 39cm i have never hit them on a car as of yet.
