It looks like my work around to play flash in Word Press no longer works. I’ll be moving the blog soon and the Flash bar geometry display will be back as well as a bunch of new and useful features.
Vodpod videos no longer available.
You can control the display by clicking on the thumbnails or using the arrows.
There are now several manufacturers making traditional bend drop bars with grooves for brifter cables. The Deda shallow and Ritchey WCS have a shallow (Italian) drop, The Deda Deep has a deep (Belgian-Pave) drop and the 3T is in between. You can check out the geometry of the classic shallow and deep drop bars in Road Drop Bar Geometry.
I am missing the Oval Concepts R701 Classic bend handlebars which like the Deda’s are available in deep and shallow drop. If someone can get me schematics I will add them.
