the distance is more, but you should still be able to shift while in the drops. You dont want to have to push up to the hood to go to a higher gear at 35mph:eek:

Since I am kind of new to road riding, I also found riding in the drops a little different at first. Now, I can ride in them for a while. It has to do with your flexibility also.

I also descend all the time in the drops. I find I can get my outside foot down easier and lean the bike more in turns. The brake leverage is way better too. I ride mtb mostly. So, one finger braking is all I'm used to.
