roadieNEWB: Biggest Classic drops on bars??

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

roadieNEWB: Biggest Classic drops on bars??

I'm building a race ready roadie, I'm looking for deep (very deep) drops and minimal length...nitto's seem close but are missing the cigar...any suggestions, ideas, companies? Any help given is much appreciated.

deep in vertical?
the only drop bars with a lot of drop are track or pista bars.
like nitto b123, Deda pista or similar.
Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

You can get some electrical conduit and bend them yourself if you want something completely off the wall.
