    Williams is an option, as perp says. I got the Maxim handlebars because I needed something with short reach and drop, 75mm and 123mm respectively. 102_0748.jpg I got free handlebar tape, decent price. Another option from a post here was my other choice: compact_drops-2-wm.jpg From www.retro-gression.com, it has a similar reach and drop at 80/125mm. They're still on sale for $24!

    thats exactly my goal, just a straight line from the top of the drop to the shifter hood.

    Good pic!

    That shallow hook area on the Ergonova does not work for me at all. I happen to wear XL gloves, but I can't imagine anyone's hand really fits properly in there. Conclusion: 3T doesn't expect you to fully grip the hooks when using that bar.

    The Omega Compacts have a really short ramp to the hoods, so I run a longer stem with them. I recently put on my old 3T Ergosum bars, and had to use a shorter stem, since it has a longer ramp to the hoods.

    Not sure which one I'll wind up going with though - longer stem vs. longer hood to bar distance.

    Old thread, but good info!

    I use a 44cm Omega Compact on my CX bike, and a 44cm SL-K on my road bike. They are very similar but not identical.

    The 42cm Ergonova Pro I was using when I posted in this thread last has been sitting in my spare parts bin for almost a year...

    The shortest reach I've seen on a compact bar is the Ritchey WCS Curve, at 73 mm. But the drop (128mm) is a bit more than most everyone else's compact bend. I like it, though. Reasonably light and stiff, too.
