|Thanks for all who left their comments and recommendation.
To recap : I have Deda Elementi Anatomic 250 with Campy levers.
I checked out Deda web site and they claimed that their Anatomic bars has better levers reach than most other competitor's bars. Okay ...
Nothing to loose. So, I tried moving the levers around (as per clintb & C-40) before buying a new handlebar. I was amaze how much difference it made to the lever reach. I moved the levers about 4mm up along the handlebars was able to get the levers to a point where I can reach it comfortably.
Also, thanks for clarifying the 'reach' measurement on handlebar specs.
I have attached 'before' and 'after' picts. The 1st pict is 'before' the 2nd pic is 'after'. I added the red line for reference.
