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
