The Double Groove road bar from Dimension is an excellent option if you're looking to upgrade or replace a handlebar. It''s a simple aluminum handlebar that will get the job done for many miles.
It has a more modern ergonomic shape to it with a cable grooves on both the front and backside of the handlebar. This feature will allow you to comfortably route just about any of the modern shift systems.

One of the first upgrades I did on my 1984 Peugeot PH10 was to get some wider bars. These fit the bill, and the ergonomic design of them make cycling through town or for exercise MUCH more comfortable. The bars helped open up my chest and give me more comfortable grip positions overall. I had some trouble getting them through the closed handlebar clamp, but a little finagling and some sweat made it happen. Definitely recommend this product!
I can't really say I have too much to compare it to but I'm pretty pleased with these bars. My bike was previously owned and set up with MTB bars and aero bars, so I wanted to go with a standard road setup. These fit the bill, as I did not want to spend too much. I only single wrapped the bars and I don't notice the cables in the grooves at all, I know that seems to be a concern for some people. For the price, I really have nothing but good things to say.
