Think about it: there are only 3 contact points on a bike, so you'd better make each one as comfy as you can. Salsa makes it easy with the Pro Road 2 bar. This double-butted aluminum bar features a short reach with a larger drop that fits larger hands better, meaning you won't have to extend your hands as far out as you would with other handlebars. The result is better comfort and control. And, they're shaped to provide a flat transition from bar to brake lever for even more comfort.
Which Reach and Drop you prefer depends on your hand size, arm length and riding style. If you like what you're riding, simply match it as closely as possible. In general, deeper drops and longer reaches are appropriate for riders with long arms and large hands while narrow drops and short reaches fit smaller riders. Handlebar Width is related to shoulder width. Riders usually prefer a handlebar width equal to the measurement between their shoulder blades, or slightly wider if they climb a lot or ride fast and hard.
