Hello, Newbie roped into LEJOG hoping for some advice... Have been told drop handle bars are often best for distance riding as they allow changes in hand position to avoid aches. 2 questions - does that fit people's experience, because it means a new bike! Or is there anything I could do to my flat handle bar hybrid? Prompted to ask as I saw a weird looking, almost figure of 8, handle bar on an expensive looking bike going past my house today. I suppose a related question is what to look for in a bike for a supported ride i.e. I won't need to carry tents etc this time, but who knows, might well want to in the future.... Many thanks in advance, Cheers.
