Need suggestions on bars for older Burley
Recently picked up a clean older Burley.
I am a) new to tandems and b) new to working on my own bike.
I have a basic Park tool kit that I bought, and hand tools from working on my car. Little to no experience working on bikes, though I'm fairly handy with cars.
Anyway, my Burley came with some bars that aren't my favorite. I'd like to swap them out with something a little less cruiser-ish.
Mainly, I'll be putting around town with my wife and towing a child trailer. Not much long distance stuff, at least for now. Mainly urban stuff.
Looking around, it seems like there is a bewildering array of bars out there. So I'd like some recommendations. I'm intriqued a little by what are apparently called On One Mary bars. Also, I thought about going to something like a basic flat bar similiar to my mountain bike. Ideas appreciated. I just don't know what would fit, transfer shifters, all that stuff.
Here's what is on there now for reference:
