Here is your alternative to “alternative drop bars”. It’s wide and takes MTB grips as well as bar tape. The grip area is long; long enough to run grip shifters(including Rohloff) and flat bar levers.
But the Gator will also take aero levers just like the Junebug. Try it bike camping, off roading, or touring.
