    I used to ride the Modolo 8-bend bars BITD (X-tenos?). Really liked them. Wish they were made now in short/shallow version with 31.8 center.

    Another benefit of these bars shapes is easier reach of the shift/brake levers in the drops for those with short fingers, compared to a compact bend that places the lever further away from the hook of the bar.

    NeoClassic is my go-to. It's also available in silver.



    The Zipp SL88 is also great, but the bar also has more reach and drop, so I have to adjust the stem accordingly to get in the same position.

    The NeoClassic is a great shape. I have them on my Zukas gravel bike and they are rooooomy in the hooks without the excessive reach or drop of something like a Deda Deep.

    Since it's always bicycle Show and Tell at V-Salon, here's the Look I keep at my mother's place in Minneapolis. It's got the Deda Zero 100 and they use the acronym RHM for Rapid Hand Movement. It's gimmicky but these are really great bars. Sensitive to proper lever placement though.

    I have moved away from the Deda Shallows in the past few years because they're also not great with modern levers. They do work, but aren't really ideal. These Zero 100s are a better fit, but they also raise the levers by a couple centimeters. It's a sneaky way for some riders to have a higher position without spacers or a riser stem.

    The ENVE 3.4s have been replaced with Boyd Altamont Lites and it's been a nice swap. Look forward to getting up to MSP and taking this one out for a spin.

    Beautifull bike. Those bars look like the opposite shape of a deda shallow: a long rising curve from the drops and flat top.

    no. but you are the only person who likes them who also didn't serve a doping suspension in the mid 1990s and/or have a cool wolf tattoo in their shoulders.

    Thanks guys. The neo classic and rhm look like decent suggestions and not too bad with modern levers. I'll try to find locals who have them on their bikes or second hand stuff to try them out.

    Deda superzero have the same RHM bend as the zero100 but with more of a curve at the top to make room for forearms when in the drops.

    I was about suggesting those, have a nice round shape on the drops but the transition between the top and the drops is not like the Gimondi/Cinelli 65. I tend to climb while holding the tops (the steeper the climb, the closer my chin gets to the stem ) so although I like the Gimondi/Cinelli 65 shape a lot, it's not for the long rides.

    Zipp says for the SL88 "go long and low", they're right!

    @Gattonero that Pegoretti looks spot on - fast even whilst standing still. Lovely garden too...

    Thanks, the garden is not mine though!

    The reason for the SL88 bars on this bike is due to their long reach, this is a stock frame so I did need an extra leap forward.
    My other (steel) Pegoretti was made to size, and has the top-tube about 1/2cm longer and the seat tube 1cm shorter than the stock size, so it's ok with medium-long reach bars.

    On the other hand, this is my "hack bike" for the foul weather/GP short rides (though I've been happy to make those 50-70km on it, and would have done 3x if time allowed).
    In the workshop I had those 3TTT Competizione that seemed to fit the bill: the frame is a tad too big for me, so with a short (100mm?) stem I could get a position that is low-but-not-too-low, and long enough. The Tektro levers are a lot better than "vintage" ones, so it's a good riding position whether on the hoods or on the drops.

    (yes, it needs a Turbo or Rolls saddle, working on it)
