With dual control levers I prefer the fit of the new ergo/compact bars, especially Ritchey's WCS Curve. With trad brake levers I prefer a Cinelli 66. It's funny. Thirty years ago Cinelli made four different road bends for different riding styles and builds, and nobody got criticized for there choice.

If you think some of the new stuff is wussy, I guess you can revert to humping up cat 1 climbs using a 13-24 freewheel with a 53-42 crank. Not me, I'm too old and fat.
