Funny enough, ergo bars are not ergo for me. I have no place for my hands. You could call wisecyclebuys.com (ask, they are not listed) or labicicletta.com (listed).

I have Deda 215 on order from my LBS. They are available in shallow (Italian) and Deep(Belgian) drop styles. I prefer the deep, because I ride with the top of the bars horizontal (works great with Campy Ergos). The drops point down towards the rear brake bridge, but that is usually my perfect position.

Try that out, adjust the bars by finding the perfect position in the drops (on a trainer) that allow your wrists to be natural and strong. Suprisingly, this position is not attainable with ergo-bars.

when I was looking for some old logo Cinelli 64's for a resto, I came across lots of later logo and grooved versions of this classic bend on ebay and NOS pairs on various sites. lots of 40's as well. should not be too hard to find.
by ergo, do you mean anatomic?rufus

or do you mean with grooves for brake and shifter cables?

deda still makes them, but the problem is that the mail order houses only stock the anatomic versions, and usually only in black. any shop should be able to order them for you.

there's something to be said about old style curved deep drop silver bars like the cinelli or ttt competizione.
No, but finding them is more difficultboneman

If you're in the US, best bet is to look for Ritchey bars which are available in a non-ergo, traditional bend. TTT still makes a model available in the TDF (shallow) and Merckx (deep) drop non-ergo bend. Other's have pointed out the Deda bars and ITM, both the 260 and Millenium are still made in traditional bends.

I used to ride Cinelli 66's which are deep drop and now use ITM 260's. They're traditional bend and shallow drop, similar to the old Cinelli 64 and 63 in drop.

And they're all made in 40 center to center (= 42 outside to outside) measure.
