I've been using a pair of Salsa Bell Lap bars on my Fargo. Perfect for the road, double track and short even techy bits of single track. But for extended downhills I find them a compromise. I should say, I rarely red on the drops, I'm almost always on the brake hoods.
If I'm pushed to use the Fargo for a big bike packing trip, I'm torn between fitting an unknown set of Wodchippers or a tried and tested set of flat bars. The latter will mean a change of brakes too.
Are there any other types of bars that I could still use my Ultegra stis on that have a very shallow drop that will offer somewhere between the two?
