Depends on your reach requirements. ENVE shallow are 78mm reach. Also Ritchey Curve (not Evo Curve) are 73mm reach. Both good choices IMO.

Huge fan of the shape of all of the Deda bars I have ridden, really good transition from hoods to tops (Shimano levers) and comfy drop shape.

75 reach on the DEDA Zero100 they are my favorite bars, shifter placement is perfect with Campagnolo..
I would rock Superleggeros if I needed a new bar.

Check out Easton bars. Nice flat lever transition. 80 reach/ 125 drop. Have them on every bike now.

I have the older 26.0 Eastons on a second bike... : ) they are why I am looking at new bars on a newer bike : )

I am kinda old school and against having the bars flare out in the drops.. ( sorry I should have put that in my 1st post... I am guessing I can live with a little flare.....

I couldn't find and Deda pages that talk about if their bars flare out in the drops? the pix look like they don't...

I should have asked about the Deda bars issue?.. There a lot of posts about them getting pinched in the stem but they are all post from a 4 or 5 years ago....

fsa compacts has 80mm reach, but, if you set up the shifters, they actually has less reach than dedas..

Bars get pinched at the stem if they are over troqued or there is a manufacturing defect, maybe both. My own sets of deda superleggaro bars have been fine. Cinelli Neos is another good choice.

Its the original Zero100 (not the short or round bend)

Mine have been great, I have a white one that was marked by the stem but it was just the paint. No indentation on the metal, I crashed mine at one point where my shifter exploded but I am still rocking the same bar.
