I like Trekking Bars , but the figure 8 bend is not as popular in the US as It is in Europe
The curve of the drops is too narrow.
which curve ? radius of the bend *, or the width overall ?
there are ergonomic bends where rather than a curved bend there is a straight section
with short tighter bends at either end..
Modolo introduced that design 20+ years ago,
*there is also a Deep Drop single curve , that also is a larger radius .
Re: short fingers the brake levers have rubber wedges that you insert in them so they dont come open all the way.
check the LBS they may have some leftover from assemblies that were not needed ..
there are shorter reach road levers , but they wont have the shifter in them too.
so you need a different way to change the gears (bar end shifters my favorite)
