Any recommendations for a nice ~190g handlebar with a classic continuous bend?

Preferably >130mm drop but I suspect I'll have to compromise into one of the newfangled 125mm shallow drop bars :(

I'm currently running Ritchey Superlogic Logic II (http://www.ritcheylogic.com/dyn_prodfamily.php?k=141144) 132mm drop version, which are really close to ideal, but have slightly too much of an ergo straight spot for my taste.

thanks,

WS

As to what they really weigh?

these have a tendency to come in under the projected weight... bonus.

edit.

WOW.... massive picture. Drop depends on width but all are over 130mm as you specified.

Funny how no one has mentioned the Rotundo LTD... Lol. Prefer it's bend much more compared to the new Tornova.
It isn't going to be easy, but it's going to be worth it.

I don't think the Thomson bars are a true classic bend...

I believe those two bars have the same bend.

Nope

Same reach and drop - very much difference arc shape.
