Ive just slid a Chorus 12 speed hydro lever on Deda Superzero aero carbon bars and it looks like that having the bars at the correct angle means the lever is sloping down. The lever was as far round as it would go. Are these bars incompatible with Campag levers?

Hi, I have chorus 12 mechanical on superzero carbon.
I have the ends of the levers inline with the bottom of the drops.
They don't go up much higher than that as the bar thickens fairly quickly.
Was the same with chorus 11 levers.

In terms of the bars in the stem I have the bottom of the drops parallel to the floor.

That makes the underside of the bar flat/parallel and the top sloping down towards you. Kinda like an aeroplane wing.

The carbon Deda bars are known to have this issue where you cannot place the shifters as high as you'd like.

Hi mate, the 12 speed ergos don't really have a 'flat' part on the hoods are quite curvy or U shaped.
Will try and get a decent side on pic tomorrow.

I had similar issue with my SR 12 shifters and an ITM bar; I used a piece of used bad tape on each shifter and it's working perfectly since last winter.
