So I went and did some CAD work because I was bored and curious to see what a 75mm-reach, classic-profiled drop bar would look like, and if so, would it look any good. Stats are as follows: 75mm reach, 125mm drop, 26.0mm clamp, 42cm CTC at the hoods/ramps, 45cm CTC in the drops (some tasty flare!). It took a few iterations and massaging of profiles and curves, but I got something with a nice side profile and shallower ramp angle (no steep Cinelli stuff here). Looks good in perspective as well, which can be tricky.
