    I have a Specialized Roubaix Pro and am considering this Bontrager bar because it has a short 75mm reach. I am looking for an ergonomic carbon bar with a short reach. I looked at the specs for Easton, Kestral, FSA, 3T, Specialized, etc. and all of them have longer reaches. I like having the hoods as close to me as possible for a short reach.

    My question is how ergonomic is it? It mentions that it has a flat top shape, but is it a comfortable ergonomic shape? Can you get the hoods up close to you for a short reach? Would you recommend this bar?. I went to a local Trek dealer, but they didn't have one because it only comes with the high-end Madone 5.9 & SSL models. I would like to know how people like it before I shell out 280 clams for it.
