I currently have an ITM Team bar on my Colnago. I'm feeling pretty stretched out on it and went to see a fitter. He confirmed. The top tube is about 2cm too long. I've already got a very short stem on it, not likely I'll find a quill stem much shorter than what's there now. So I've started looking for other options. One occurred to me today.
Is there a drop bar that starts the bend to the drops quickly? On my current bar, from the start of the bend out to the farthest extent in the middle of the bend it's 90mm (this is the distance forward from the start of the bend to the furthest extent). I'm wondering if there is a bar that starts the bend to the drops sooner. Maybe like a 70 mm or 50 mm distance instead. I also need them 440mm wide and 26mm for the stem clamp (quill type, ITM Eclypse).
What do ya'll think? And no, getting a new frame right now is way outside my budget.
