    Good Advice...
    from my Owner's Manual: " The exact position of handlebars is a matter of personal preference. For bicycles with flat handlebars, the bar should be positioned relatively horizontal."

    Scratching my head...is there an alternative to the above?

    Lol! I'm struggling to find an alternative, and I'm coming up blank.

    I believe flat handlebars can have sweep. Thus, an improperly installed flat bar, with sweep, will angle up or down.

    I've never seen a flat bar without sweep, although they probably do exist.

    ^^Yes, I suppose you are right, I was thinking old school, when flat meant straight!

    Walk by the bikes in Wally World or Target. They'll school you good :)
