I've run Surly Open Bars on MTB trails and love 'em.

I'm wanting to get some Soma Dream Riser bars. 25 back sweep, a little wide for me @ 780mm, but I think they still have room for controls @ 700-720mm.

Nice setup I need to look into those!

I'd say the Trek will help you to shift your weight back at points so you don't fly over the bars. You're kid will probably drop you in your (awesome looking) drop bar but how much do you talk before taking a break really?
