I must confess that looking back thorugh some old pic's of my road bike that my drops always used to be horizontal, as time has gone by they have rotated to the point where now the tops are horizontal, still use the drops though, only on down hills mind you.
LeMond had some great bars, my favourites are the Scotts where the drops turn in back toward the frame and then join up again aero style in front of the head tube.
Somerset, like 'Heartbeat' with newer cars!
