Can you post pictures of your drops? I'm interested in the angle people have them tilted at as I can't seem to come up with a perfect sweet spot for mine. It seems that I run the drops more parallel to the ground than most, not super rotated upwards.

I don't have pictures of my bars on my current computer so I can't help you there. :P

But for me personally, getting the perfect bar angle consisted of sitting on a trainer (or standing over your bike) with the stem clamp loosened enough to allow the bars to slightly rotate. Again you should do this standing still for safety reasons. :lol: Then I just put my hands in the drops, gave them a good grip, and adjusted the angle with my arms until there was a fairly neutral pressure feeling in my hands. I'll bet that sweet spot angle is different for everyone since everyone's fit and bars are not all the same. I run 3T Rotundo's btw.

A few of my bikes over the last few years. Deda Newton Deep Drop bars. The best bar in the world.

With 3T Rotundos I find that if the lower bar is parallel to the ground then the top is much too angled down to be comfortable; something more symmetrical works for me. I do have to fiddle about with the bar and the lever position for a while before I get it right
