specialized tricross comp 2009 flat handlebars?


I'm supposed to be picking up this bike this weekend taught I should ask your opinion first.

link to bike :

Plan on using it for every day cycling and a tour of europe next year, would it work as a flat bar?

I have lower back issues so looking for a more upright riding position.

Price is 450 euro with a carrier, saddle bad and mudguards, does that sound about right?

Apparently in great condition.

You can achieve a more upright position using drop bars (stem swap, use spacers), but you wouldn't be the first one to convert from drops to a flat/riser bar on a CX bike.
