Do you prefer flat bars or drop bars and why?

maybe its just my shoulder and the width of flat bars thats the issue for me ,
Fair enough, I have pretty narrow flats. Big MTB bars are horrific on my shoulders, for sure.
Mines AC joint arthritis probably, couple pd with the 2 surgeries a few years ago, which means everything gets grumpy!
A couple of t-shirts here. on both sides, even before the new RH joint, so know what you mean. Not pleasant at all...

Drops for me on the road. I ride on the hoods most of the time but it is great to have the other positions available to allow a change.

As you haven't done a comparison how have you come to that view
I'm not making any comparison. Just stating my experience. I've never had any problem seeing where I'm going or enjoying the view.

But, if you want a comparison I also don't have any problem seeing where I'm going or enjoying the view when I ride my H6L Brompton.

In fact I've never had a problem seeing where I'm going or enjoying the view on any bike. Except maybe when I had a go at riding on the back of a tandem once. The captain got in the way. ;)
