    Drop handlebar recommendation.

    I'm currently using deda pista drops, I feel too low in the drop position.
    Any recommendation for road drops with a flat top? I was looking at the 3T ergonova pro, or the fsa wing pro. If you know any other bars let me know below! (Personal experiences please)

    those are good choices, i have the deda rhm 02 and theyre nice, you most likely want a compact drop which is what all of these are

    I replaced my ergonovas with WPC's and will never go back.

    I use the 3T ergonova pro's. I spend a lot of time in the drops and find them really comfortable. Tops are nice with the flat design to.

    If you don't need/like the wing, I have loved my FSA Omega compacts since I got them.

    I ride a brakeless track bike, so no shifters.

    The zipp handlebars look really comfortable(assuming its the Zipp Vuka Sprint)! I'm not trying to spend 300 dollars on handlebars.
    Pista drops are okay at first, but if I'm in the drops for too long I feel uncomfortable.

    I like my Salsa Short & Shallows but I'm pretty easy to please. Most of my time is spent on the hoods, and I think more about levers than bars.

    I would do a search on eBay.....Price + Shipping: Lowest First.

    No sense crashing high dollar bars.

    Haha I laughed. FYI brakeless is illegal here, I have a street legal bike.
