I ride on the drops going slowly because I get more control that way. I also ride a lot on the brakes and the top. That's the point. You can switch position a lot more to wherever is comfortable. And I wouldn't worry too much what you look like. I shouldn't have thought you'll get any more comments riding slowly on the drops than you will otherwise.

Good luck getting your bike. $700 is about 10 times what I spent on my last bike, but that was second hand and I have upgraded parts since.

Ellie, I apologize for that comment. I didn't mean anything by it, honest. I'm sure most females can out ride me. For a 24 year old, I'm not as fit as I would like to be. Again, I am sincerely sorry for what I said.

Thanks for the advice I actually went to a LBS (local bike shop...I'm assuming) and looked around today after went pretty well.
