I just got my old Giant Sedona AL roadworthy for my Dad, test
rode it to work at lunch. The adjustable bar is comfy. I forgot the name of my 2yo entry level MTB Giant I ride with tri-bar pulled back for easy upright cycling, but that is a good work around, and keeps head up to enjoy the view more without straining neck. Grips are shot from parking in weather.
I came across this street trials bicyclist video, bringing me back to this thread

My first freedoms were by pedals. Nothing like this, but makes me want to pull the fluoro green panniers and carrier rack off the back, smack down the high rise cruise tri-bar, connect the bell to the spokes and shout between ring-a-ding-dings at the birds through a foggy dawn around the lake and through the local bushland... in dreams while sleeping cos it's too cold!!!
