I keep my well-worn Brooks Pro approximately level. Try standing on the cranks periodically, and experiment with different saddles and positions. The tops of my drop bars are perhaps 5cm below the top of my saddle -- I certainly would not want them any lower! Also, try varying your hand (and therefore body) position during a ride; many people consider the brake hoods, rather than the drops, to be the "normal" position.
