We start with the drops, the best position for fast riding. It's lower, so you're more aerodynamic, but you also have more control, particularly as this is the most effective position from which to brake.
Next we tackle the hoods, the best position for all day comfort. It's not quite as aerodynamic, but it's great for climbing out of the saddle.
Finally, holding your bars on the tops is perfect for long, gradual climbs as it sits you further back on the bike, opening up your lungs and recruiting your glutes.
Watch this guide, and you will always be in the right position on your bars.
