Not quite "finger reach", but to be a bit more specific... I'd like to be able to ride in the drops with my hands towards the front of the drops with a fairly straight arm. However, I find that I need to bend my elbows quite a bit in order to have my hands at the front. Seems that when I'm towards the front of the drops my forearms come pretty close to rubbing against the horizontal (or top?) part of the bars.
malanb was right. Some drop bars have a shorter reach, as well as a shallower drop. they also come with various kinds of "anatomic" bends. You may need to look around at different bar designs to find one that fits your style better. A change in the angle of the bars, and the placement of the levers, may also solve this issue.
