Alpina Bars

What are the drops like on Alpina bars? Are they compact or a deeper drop?

I wouldn't call them deep, but it's a traditional drop not a compact one.

I ended up buying a pair of Dixie Flyer bars. Havenít installed them yet, but the look great.

I switched from Scatto (37cm) and Alpina (33cm) to currently BT (36cm) which I like best. The dimension just seems a better fit works. Alpina has much more drop that I could use in any short race.
