Handlebar recommendations

I have the ritchey pro biomax bars http://ritcheylogic.com/dyn_prodfamily.php?k=299398
I am looking for bars with the same bend in the drops but with a "flat" section on the tops. Any recommendations?

One thing to be aware of is the fore/aft slope the flat takes on when the bar is the position as you like. On some bars it's angle back. I prefer and recommend that it be close to horizontal.

I recommend handlebars to anybody on a bike. I've got 'em on all of mine and couldn't be happier.

Don't ever grab your quill stem and think you can steer that way. It will not end well.
