    Preferably this kind of style

    I use these:

    ..but I got them for $17 when Nashbar had a sale. The drop isn't as drastic as the ones you posted, but I think they're solid bars.

    +1 for Syntace Stratos. I have the 200's and the drops seems to be right for me, but it's all preference. They're light, cheap, and stiff.

    I'd possibly be down for a trade for my rb-021's. Lemme know if you're interested. Maybe trade for a week or so and see what you think. I wish mine dropped a bit less, I'm a tad shorter than you.

    Really? They were pretty popular 5 or 6 years ago. You could get them from Chuck's bikes for like 15-20 buck all day long. I wouldn't be surprised if you could still get them cheap somewhere.

    To the OP, I've got a set of Ritcheys with a good drop that I'll sell you for 20 bucks.

    You can get these from Chuck's Bikes for $12.... I just got some a couple weeks ago, and although in the pic on his website it doesn't show the syntace logos, they are on there when you get them.... He's closing his doors though, so there might not be many left...


    I like them a lot.

    I have a set of vintage nitto TT bars, they are somewhat too...something... for me to use:

    So I'm using flat nittos instead.

    1980 Mclean/Silk Hope Sport Touring
    1983 Bianchi pista

    I love my RB-021's. They are more than $20, but super comfy.

    mmmmm.....Nitto RB-021's. I have them, and I will never get rid of them. Definately worth the $ since I'll never have to buy another bar.

    Had the Syntace Stratos on an old Lemond I used to have. I like the RB-021's a ton more. Just more comphy. But for the price, you can't beat the Syntace's.

    I have a cheap Trans-X one that I got off of ebay. It doesn't have any drop because I prefer to sit more upright, but I know that there are similar ones that do drop.

    to me, it seems that stratos have been second fiddle to the nitto triplets in the court of public opinion of bulls.
