Anyone recommend shallow drop handbars from a particular company?

Try Salsa Moto Ace Short and Shallow. They are about $30. I have them on two of my bikes. They are light, stiff and only $30!!

Try the Salsa Poco--even shallower than the Short and Shallow. BTW these come in at least five widths--if you want exact specs on widths, drop, and reach, go to your LBS and ask take a look at the Quality Bicycle Products catalog. Most shops deal with them as a distributor, and their catalog has all the poop on thousands of components. Of course it also has the wholesale prices, but a secure shop shouldn't mind you seeing those too.

affordable bars with several shallows to choose from. The moto-ace are the most affordable, and the pocos are a little more money and a bit lighter. Give Salsa a call, they're good people.

You also might want to look at the TTT Morphe and/or the Terry...

The Ritchey Pro and WCS handlebars have a shallow drop. They are probably more expensive than the Salsa bars, but lighter. I've got a WCS bar and really like it.
Thanks All!Joe F.

I think I'll check out the ritchey and salsa stuff. I know an LBS in my area that stocks some of their stuff. Okay!
