Perhaps this question has been covered before.

So I have a habit of building my road bikes once a frame is bought. One of them has FSA Omega compact bars with 105 STI shifters. The other has Chorus shifters on FSA Energy compact bars. I think the FSA compact bars were designed with the STI shifters in mind. Wondering if there is a style or brand of bar that has the Ergo shifters in mind. I think the Ergo levers could fit on a bar with a longer reach than the FSA for example. I've not tried Deda bars yet and being Italian, I wonder if they go well together.

FSA are also Italian. It depends on the bar model as much as the manufacturer tbh

Anatomical bars seem to be a love/hate thing. I've used Deda anatomical bars of several of my most recent builds. They are light, priced right, and match very well with Campy shifters, allowing a flat transition to the top.

I'd post a picture, but it's too much of a pain on this site. You'll have to take my word for it.

This is what I mean http://www.ribblecycles.co.uk/deda-newton-31-anatomical-31-7-handlebars/#pid=8389
There's sometimes a buggy.
How many drivers does a buggy have?


So let's just say I'm drivin' this buggy...
and if you fix your attitude you can ride along with me.
