There have been some excellent threads on this topic of numb hands and alternative handlebars. I switched my relatively flat riser bars for a tourist type handlebar from an old Schwinn. I was getting numb hands at around the 10 mile mark and now am numb free. My bike has me sitting up fairly upright (weight on rear, not hands) to begin with. Just having the grips angled in did the trick. Look at tourist, soma, sparrow, moustache, etc. handlebars. Search alternative handlebars first though.
