Anyone use flat/straight bars instead of drops?

    Drop bars give you a choice of hand positions and can be less fatiguing - getting onto the drops helps with weight distribution on fast descents and riding on the tops eases the back on ascents. Shallow drop bars from the likes of FSA and 3T are ideal.
    Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..
