Good shallow drop handlebars?(7 posts)

Good shallow drop handlebars?AlexR

This is for the track bike. My 3T Pista bars are way too deep for the geometry of this bike/my corpus.

Is there a good bar out there with a shallower than average drop? I'm not talking track bars, just regular road bars, preferably anatomical, with a nice shallow drop.

I have a few friends that really like the Ritchey bars, they are anatomical and have a good feel to them. I've not ridden them but they feel good in the hands.

My figures may be a bit off, but the drop of the 3T bars is right around 200mm and the drop of the Ritchey bars tends to be around 145mm.

I've got the Salsa MotoAce Short & Shallow. It's an inexpensive bar with a shallow drop. It's not the lightest bar out there, but it's plenty stiff.

I've got 3000 miles on a pair of those and they've been fine. It's a touring bike, don't care about the weight, but the bars were cheap, like $30 or something.

To my knowledge the average drop is 170mm.

Salsa makes the Short & Shallow Bar.
DROP 144mm
REACH 82 mm
Anatomic bend and is double groved.
Comes in silver or black.

For an even less drop,
Salsa has the Poco bar.
DROP 140 mm
REACH 82 mm
Anatomic bend and is single groved.
Comes in silver or black.

3ttt has the Mophe bar
DROP 155 mm
REACH 105 mm
Anatomic and is double groved.
Comes in silver or black.

Hope this helps.
Thanks folks, ordered the Ritcheys- 144mm dropAlexR

The Pistas are 200mm. Anybody want them? Used only a couple of times. They are 42 wide, 26.0. I saw them on cbike for $60. I'll let them go for half that.
