The Search for a Better Handlebar--

Miyata Handles, although way better than no handle at all, are a far cry from perfection.   Aside from being too small, they are made of slick plastic which is usually green.  Using a Miyata handle also requires that  your wrist be kinked while you ride,  and heavy use can cause stiff knuckles.  Did I mention  they are small? 

So I've set out in search of something better.  What we really want is a GIANT sized ergonomic handle.

Requirements:
-Room
Lots of room for fingers to curl all the way around the handle.
-Shape
All faces must be convex, not concave like the underside of the Miyata Handles. 
-Angle
The handle must be comfortable to use, and must allow (and should encourage) the wrist to be straight during use.
