A good standing posture. Your bike handlebar influences your posture.

Hybrid bikes have a straight handlebar. It pulls shoulders forward, pretty much like working on a computer, which is not healthy for a commuting biker. I let a standard model handlebar be changed to my bike.

There is actually a wide variety of “standard” handlebars, each with a slightly different kind of a curve. Thanks to a hint, I thought of going to a recycling center. They had a selection of more than 50 handlebars for only 3 € each.
