To answer Machka's question, if you have conventional drop bars, you could rotate them 200 degrees or so, so that the end of the bars is on top of the stem. This might work at least temporarily until you figure out what height you need. It was favorable to my oldest son and wife.

Stoker Bar Options

Is there a Stoker bar that does not connect to the Captain's seat post?

I think they are called Love Handles

(Sorry, I saw the shot and had to take it ).

I have never seen any such solution and would not know if anything exists. I would assume you are asking as your seat post is low enough so as to not allow enough room for stoker bar?

A handful of builders will make a stoker stem that attaches to the stoker top tube, or a stoker stem mast welded to the top tube. Those are most commonly seen on time trial tandems with a really long (~100cm vs ~73cm) stoker compartment.

Rotate those Bullhorns 180 degrees. Our Burley came like that, much better for the stoker.

I've converted our single road bikes to this setup, a Reversed Chop & Flop. See Reversed Chop & Flop Handlebar
