I won an auction for a new-to-me frameset on eBay, a 58cm 2012 Specialized Allez E5 in excellent condition. Included in the deal is a Ritchey "Classic" bend handlebar. I had standardized on compact bars (Deda RHM01) on my other bikes, but would like to give these a try since there's so much love for them among the group here.
It looks like these should be set up with the drops parallel to the ground and the shifters vertical. My other bars are set up with the seat-bar drop measured at the stem and the hoods going straight off the bars. My guess is that the seat nose-shifter distance should be set up the same as my other bikes and the seat-bar drop should be measured at the hoods. Any nuances in there I need to be aware of?
