Who makes a roadbar with the deepest drops?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Who makes a roadbar with the deepest drops?

I was reading Greg Lemond's book on cycling and he prefers handlebars with real deep drops so that he can sit erect on climbs but can get super aero in the drops for descents. Great idea IMO!

He mentions Cinelli but the book is like 18 years old. Modern day suggestions please?

To be able to use the tops with an erect posture you know you are going to have to set them fairly high, right?

Modern drops tend to be quite deep, too deep for many riders.
Cinelli is now part of the same group as 3TTT, who publish detailed specs of their range of bars on the interweb at 3ttt.com

Pista bars are 170mm+. Not sure how deep road bars go?(I've seen 155mm a lot though)

If you call Excell Sports Boulder and get a catalog, they have the demensions of all the bars they sell - which is a lot. I can't remember off the top of my head which is the deepest, but one model is substantially deeper with more reach than the rest.
