    New shifters, brakes and handlebars at least.

    It's not going to be cheap.

    I know drop bars feel funny to begin with - but they're worth persevering. Lets face it millions of people can cope with them - and they're much better for longer rides.

    What don't you like about them?

    Where are you normally putting your hands?

    I ask since, generally speaking (there are exceptions) drops are considered the most comfortable mainly because they offer multiple positions; hands on the top, hands on the brake hoods or on th drops.
