Hello,
Looking for recommendation for short reach and shallow bar.
Currently I'm rinding IRD Blackbird: 85mm reach, 105mm drop.
However, the blackbord weight 350g!!!
Looking for a lighter weight bar that has the same reach and drop as the blackbird. I do like the blackbird since I've small hand. Fits me great. Just looking to drop some weight without changing the reach/drop.

Thx
Kwantani

Easton EC90 SLX in the goofy ergo shape is a 45mm reach and a 145mm drop claimed 200 grams (must be the 40) my 42 pro bend weighs 220. The EC90 Equpie Pro bend (which is not being made next year) is claimed to be 185 grams but is no where near that and has 75mm reach and a 130 mm drop.

The Deda newton in a Shallow bend are 130mm drop and 80mm reach.

All the bars above are ~200 grams +/- 10%........ish :lol:

105mm of drop is shallow, I think you'll have some trouble finding a bar that is that shallow. The Eastons and the Deda are relativly shallow compaired to a lot of other bars. I perfer a shollow bar and use the ones above FWIW.
