    big drop drop-bars
    christmas is coming and i thought i'd upgrade my handlebars. can anyone recommend bars that have a big drop and reach? i currently have giant's connect sl 42cm/ drop: 135mm / reach 90mm

    i want to get lower on my bike and extend my reach, i already have a stem that is long and drops quite a bit so any more drop and reach have to come from the handlebars

    i was originally looking at the 3T zefiro bars as i race ITU triathlons and they seemed great; a bit more reach but then i noticed the drop was 112mm....

    i like the idea of having flat tops to rest my elbows on and have clip on aerobars coming from the bottom of my tops but this would just be an extra feature. i mainly need the big drop and longer reach

    budget? well i was willing to buy the 3t zefiros so you get the picture :)

    cheers

    It's a little dated, but can still point you in the right direction.

    Oh, and "deep" drops, are what you're looking for.

    That's a half inch short of deep drop.
