2. I assume you're looking at upright handlebars rather than
road (drop) bars. The large offroad market means you can
get matching quality compatible shifters for most popular
road gear systems. Flat or upright bars do not mean a lower
quality bike.


The other way around. Upright bars aggravate my damaged rotator cuff.

Also, the last time I rode my upright-bar bike less than half a mile
to Sweet Dreams, I was out of breath when I got there. I don't even
notice that distance on my drop-bar bike.
