I recently bought a Dawes Super Galaxy from the late 80s or early 90s. When I was researching bike fit beforehand I was told that swapping drop bars to flat bars can affect the bike fit since drop bar bikes are designed bearing in mind that hand position is further forward.
The bike came with flat bars which the previous owner had fitted and they're not that comfortable. Since I want to try touring I'm looking to fit handlebars which provide multiple hand positions, but I'd also like to maintain a more upright posture for commuting.
Will fitting butterfly bars return the bike fit more to what the manufacturer intended with drop bars?
