Short reach short drop road bar 26mm options

Who makes a short reach and drop 26mm non ergo road bar? I really like the 3T Ergosum and Ergonova on my 650c and my CX bike but are only available in a 31.8. Despite having the word "ergo" in their names they don't have that goofy stepped sections in the drops I despise and a nice bend to them. It also has to be non painted also as it's going on my Ciocc and don't want to use a modern 31.8 threadless stem with an adapter and kill the looks of the bike. It's got a Nitto Technomic quill stem as I don't have any Cinelli 1A stems to use and took off the Cinelli Grammo stem cause it flexed with the Cinelli 1" adapter I had. So people...what are my option?

I like my 3TTT Forgie but it's black... so, that doesn't help much.

I had a set of those but didn't really care for them. Plus they had those ergo bends in them.

I'm using the Soma Hwy One bar. It comes in 26.0 or 31.8, silver or black and in several widths. It's awfully shallow and has the shortest reach of any bar I've used, so choose your stem accordingly.

The Forgie I have is a round bend, not ergo. Justin's will work better though.

have you tried the cinelli giro d'Italia/ TOP 64? after 1990 they should be 26.0.
