I got the handle bar at Performance Bike. If you have one near you, they could install it as well. It really took less than 1/2 hour to do if you have a set of metric Allen wrenches.

I'm not really a great handiman. Do you think REI would be able to replace my grips (and maybe even handlebar) without messing it up? Or do I need to go to a Currie dealer only?
Any competent dealer can replace grips including techs at REI. Handlebars require a little more expertise as you sometimes need to redo cable lengths. Again, any reasonably competent bike tech should be able to do this for you.

New handlebars, Ergon grips and the City Kit installed. Just waiting for the Ortlieb Sport Packer Plus bags and I am ready to start commuting.

I bought handle bar grips like yours and installed them upside down because I am not fond of the grey trim. I really like them. Very comfy.
I simply disconnected the throttle (never use it) and everything works fine.
I also added a far more comfortable seat and SPD pedals.
