I agree, seeing these commuters is great--it's fun to see how other people have solved the transportation problem. I used to use drop bars on this bike, but like you I found myself riding the hoods constantly. What I like about this setup is it puts all the controls at your finger or thumbtips. When commuting in traffic I am much more comfortable with this brake setup. Not that traffic is that big of a deal in Ames, but a few people have tried to run over me...probably friends. I'll post a pic of the whole thing when I get home from work...I'm off to ride home!
