Who makes the shortest reach on a roadbar

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

Saw some Specialized Zertz bars with a 75mm reach- does anyone make one shorter?
"How did all those 'Keep Off the Grass' signs get there?"

There a pitfall with shorter bro. Tighter radius and less room for your palm behind the hood. 80mm is pretty tight with average size hands.
My favorite bars are FSA Winged Compact...Kwing carbon compact my very fav...believe its about a 80mm reach.
Good luck.
