Bar rotation dependz - everyone has a different way of setting them up, within a range.
Being that I prefer non-anatomic (classic bend) bars I like to have a slight downward tilt of the 'drop' so that a sight line down the drop towards the rear of the bike goes a goodly amount above the rear hub, closer to wheel top. But it really depends on the bars - some bars 'finish the bend' more than others.
You just gotta 'fish' til you find a position that you like. Often the bar makes a real difference. Of all the anatomics I've tried I like the Spec Carbon bars that came on the Tarmac and Roubaix well enough to not bother changing them. I also found the old Supergo Anatomics were reasonably acceptable - for me...
I just way prefer the classic bend - Reynolds Ouzo Bars, DaKine!
