I’m deciding between the Ritchey WCS Classic and the Deda Zero 100 bars.
Any opinions on either one?

    I'm a fan of Ritchey kit - full stop.

    Two different kinds of bars. The Ritchey is a 'classic' old school round bend bar with a deep drop, the Deda is a modern shallow drop bar so it's easier/quicker to transfer from tops to drops. I find shallow bars make it much easier to control the brakes/shifters from the drops too.

    FWIW I use Ritchie WCS Evocurve bars. Middle of the road drop with a nice flattened and slightly swept back top section for climbing when seated.
