Recreational & Family - Handlebar help
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
For those of you who just ride for fun, here's my question. What type of handlebar do you prefer? I'm used to drop bars and find flat, non riser, bars uncomfortable. Is there a type of bar that's more swept back but not a drop bar available? My wife wants to start riding but hates drop bars. So I'm trying to convert an old road bike I have to more of a city type bike. Hope that's the correct terminology.
Do they make a bar that's swept back like that without the welded on bar ends? They look way too funky for my wife.

Moustache bars might be the ticket,
Also the trekking bars are a possibility.

I have moustache bars on my singlespeed--they might work for her. Mine are here: http://www.rivbike.com/products/list/handlebars_stems_and_tape?a=1&page=2#product=16-028
If they don't suit her mounted with the ends slanting downward, try turning them over. Rivendell'a Albatross or Dove bars also might work, on the same Web site.
