    Handlebars. Lets hear it

    Another post in the "i'm building a bike and need your help" series.

    I'm looking for:

    STIFFNESS
    Big Drop and Long Reach, nothing compact
    I like ergo shapes. I know this isn't cool with the elite crowd.
    I like flat tops, but it's more important that I can fit aerobars on for the occasional TT
    I don't have unlimited funds, so most likely aluminum, but I'm not anti-carbon
    All others being equal, lightness will factor in.

    Please give me suggestions, but PLEASE post reach & drop numbers.
    My current bike has ITM Lite Luxe Wing shape handlebars. I like them a lot and would just buy another pair if I could find aerobars that fit.

    Thanks,
    B.

    Flat top = no aero bars
    other than that the oval concept are pretty deep and have a decent reach w/ an ergo bend. R700 I think is the model, don't know the exact numbers off the top of my head but you can look them up.

    I picked up some ITM bars from Nashbar about a year ago that fit that description...I want to say they were Super 300 model...don't quote me on that...about 154 drop...don't recall the reach...anatomic bend is OK....

    I was a Cinelli 66 guy in years gone by, and these seem to match that amount of drop anyway...

    oh yeah...$19
