Thanks, modern bikes are new to me (I rode a lot in the '70s-early '90s and am just getting back into regular riding) and I appreciate help & advice in making my bike more comfortable.

An ad on our local craigslist has a flat bar conversion to the same model, but it looks like a bit of a bodge, as he replaced the fork and it only has the rear brake:

I live on a flat island with no significant hills, most of my riding is on gravel trails & paved bike paths, I don't need a huge range of gears.
I'd like to stick with Shimano, which flat bar brakes are compatible with Dual Pivot Caliper Brakes?
