    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.
    we've got both kinds, country and western.

    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.
