Well, I have Salsa short & shallows on my Casseroll and I like them. But they really are typical drop bar shaped, but a shorter width and distance from too bar to drop curls, plus they have the "ergo" palm section in the curls.
I also have Salsa Woodchipper bars, they are more an MTB drop that splays out in the drops to a more natural hand angle. They also are a bit more shallow from top to drop, but wider width to make it a more casual type feeling instead of an aero type feeling. They definately feel more like MTB bars than road bars.
I also have Jones Loops. These are a nice upright alternative to drops with a nice natural angle and many hand positions. They are my winter bar setup, when wind and road isn't so much a factor as balance and comfort. I use the Woodchippers and Loops on my Pugsley.
