I've been told the benefits of drop bars, and because of that, I plan on giving them a shot, but to automatically put people into a category of being goobers who don't know any better is wrong. If I try the drop bars and still decide that I like the flat bars better, that's what I will use when I tour. It doesn't make me any less of a cyclist.
But what about the cyclist who wants a better helmet? What about the manufacturer that would prefer putting the $180 of "value added" into better engineering and better materials
Not sure I would go for Shimano bar end shifters or Campagnolo Ergo. I'm not sure mixing brands between wheels and shifters/derailleurs works as well as some claim.
