Don't go to the trouble to take a photo, I was hoping you had one of the setup that you described as: ... instant Nirvana. Something I'd never experienced before, ie. total comfort with drop bars.

I made my own version of the Crazy handlebar by mounting some old MTB bar ends inboard of the levers; after the novelty had worn off I didn't find them very useful. Then I fitted Ergotec butterfly bars and liked them much more - I'd still be using them but that bike was stolen; its replacement has a flat and quite swept back handlebar, great for cruising around but I think I'd want more positions on longer rides. Its other replacement is going to have Cinelli 66 drops - I used to find these really good, I suspect I'm no longer flexible enough to use them well.
