Upright or North Road
One of the oldest type of handlebars, this type of bar was named after the North Road Cycling Club in London. North Road bars are swept back toward the rider, with each grip ending nearly parallel to each other and the bike. They were used on three-speed and single speed Raleighs, Schwinns, and other three-speed bikes well into the 1980s, as well as various European utility bikes and roadsters. They have recently enjoyed a resurgence in popularity on some hybrid bicycles, city bikes, and comfort models. They are also known as "Townie", or "Tourist" bars. North Road bars can easily be inverted to give a slight amount of drop when a more aggressive riding posture is desired.
