Old school stem, new school handlebar

I am getting a frame that calls for a threaded one inch stem like the Technomics.

I want to try one of those new bars that has a short reach, a short drop and no ergo bump.

Most of them don't fit a technomic stem. One of the Nitto Dreams does, but the shop wants $150 for it.

So... do you know of a good handlebar without an ergo bump I can use with STI shifters?

And that doesn't cost $150...

I like the Nitto B115. Milwaukee has them for about $35 the B105s might be more to your liking though

We're talking about the 25.4 or 26.0 technomics?

The frame requires a one inch stem.

I would guess I could get either 25.4 or 26 as long as the stem is one inch like the Technomics

I'm trying to decide between the 105, 117 Maes bend, the 171 Noodle and the Nitto Randonneur.

I'll be using STI shifters, if that makes a difference, and I keep my bars level with the saddle.

it's probably not what you're looking for based on looks, but lots of manufacturers make a 25.4 threaded to threadless stem converters that you can than use any threadless stem with and then pretty much any handlebar.

I might wind up doing that.

But I am old and prefer the classic look.
