Hi all,

Yesterday I went for a bike fit as I was suffering with knee pain after needing to move my seat up 20mm this should hopefully be resolved fingers crossed.

However while on the fit I was explaining on the hoods my position feels pretty much bang on but on the drops I feel a little cramped up. My fitter explained the ultegra hydro shifters have a pretty long reach and I'm using a deda compact bar which has I tight bend.

He suggested i should move to a classic style bar which will bring my position a little forward on the drops.

Can anyone give any advice on what bars I should be looking at I've searched classic bar but hardly any options appear?

Ideally I'm looking for a light weight carbon bar with a high quality so bands like, zipp, 3T etc.

Richey neoclassical or fizik 00 snake come to mind. The fizik has more reach so check the specs against your current one
