I've thought long and hard about drops vs whatever, and the main reason I stick with drops is that for me drops are more comfortable over all, specifically the different hand positions that I use all the time.
I'd really like to try those Denham bars but a bit pricey for me to get them for an experiment, for now anyway, and especially for the predominantly road trips I do.
Way more rough and slow roads could change that view.

as for climbing, I've done tons of climbing trips in mountains, and still find dropbars to be very efficient--- but again, slow rough roads would be different where wider bars would be a plus.
