Now I get this handlebar reach thing. I couldn't figure out why I always felt a little stretched out at the beginning of a ride on my red bike. Once I'm in the drops, all is well. My old 3T bars, my new 3T bars, WCS Classics, and Nitto 185 are all within a couple mm in reach and drop.

I'll probably order some Nitto 104 which have a 65mm reach vs. the 80mm reach of the 185. Anyone know if the drops will be in the same place? Do you think that the bar ends move back the 15mm or do they adjust the bend to put the bar ends in the same place? The drop is the same 140.
