Has anyone changed the handlebar on their CCX to a swept back bar?

I'm looking to change to a more relaxed upright the riding position on my CCX. The forward lean fatigues my 66 yer old neck and shoulders. Has anyone changed their handlebar and could recommend a certain fix?

Yes. I did, though because straight bars are bad ergonomics, I still preferred a forward lean.

I would look into handlebars from Velo Orange; you may want a bar with rise as well.as backsweep. I have a Postino which is flat. You could get a shorter and upward stem as well to make it upright.

I used this riser to raise my CCS handlebars to a more comfortable height. Made a huge difference. You might also want an adjustable stem to rotate the handlebars closer to you. I've thought about it but never added it on.
