Mundane question here:
My girlfriend has a mid-late '90s specialized hardrock. The frame is 15.5", but it seems to fit her well. What she doesn't like is the MTB bars and the 'hunched' riding position - she'd like to ride upright.
So I'm looking at handlebars of the old 3-speed style... the wald cruiser #867, the pyramid 'north road' style bar etc.
I've checked out quite a few local bike shops, and none of them have anything in, so I'd be just as blind ordering off the internet as through a store. The bars need to have sweep, but also enough rise to bring her to an upright riding position and to clear her knees. The bike also has the integrated brake/grip-shift combo, so the ends need to be long enough to accommodate that.
I suppose I'll need new cables as well, but I'll cross that bridge when I get to it
Any suggestions from people who have done something similar?
