I don't have the bike at hand, but I think they're Sakae Randonneurs. Great bars, but on the narrow side.

That's a great idea, and I can envision how I could clamp the main beam in the jaws of my Workmate bench. Now I'm kicking myself for passing on a Vetta trainer I was offered for free a few weeks ago!

Yep, I've learned that lesson. My current Rockhopper has flat bars, it's not set up as a commuter.

I used to use my vise as well, the downside is that I need to clear off the clutter on the workbench to make room for a frame to pivot. The bench vise is unbeatable for removing freewheels too.
