    Need to find a specific type of drop bar

    I have the Salsa Bell Lap, and it doesn't work for me. I want a replacement, and here's what I need:

    - Oversize (31.8)
    - Available in 48cm (ideally) or 46cm wide
    - Flat 'ramp' behind the hoods, so I have a relatively horizontal hand position when I'm riding on the hoods
    - Does NOT have those ergo 'bumps'... the flat, angled ergo style might work, as long as the 'tails' of the drops are long and flat enough for me to grab while standing on the pedals and hammering
    - Black

    The Nitto Noodle would be perfect, if it were oversized.

    The Deda Elementi Newton seems good - the top is relatively flat, and even comes in an old-school 'Belgian' style that has a perfect drop curve, but it's over $100. Does anyone know cheaper alternatives?
