I have a thorn equipped w/ a straight bar and want to put on a drop bar.
However, I don't want the bar tapered (from a bump in the middle), as I have lot's of stuff to mount, including an Arkel Big Bag (which turns out to be really freaking big). Tapered bars mean big portions that can be used to mount gadgets.
I'd be happy w/ a big, wide aluminum handlebar, something like the "PMT" handlebar on the LHT complete, though I wouldn't mind it a bit wider.
Ideally, I'd put one of Gilles Berthout's new rohloff shifter on it:
Does anyone make simple, I think 23.2mm handlebars anymore?
