I got back into cycling (actually was never much in before) earlier this year when I turned 60. I assumed that at my age, and with a history of back problems, a hybrid was about the best I could do. Last month, while on vacation, I tried a Giant OCR3. I know it's not a great bike, but it has adjustable handlebars - i.e. they move up-and-back, similar to the ones on my Trek 7500. Because I was able to move the bar closer to my body, I could achieve a slightly more upright position, which made things a lot easier on my back. My question is, are there any other road bikes that have this?

thanks,
Jay

Look (Ergo) makes a couple of stems that are adjustable, one for quill stem types, and one for threadless. They are almost infinitely adjustable. Some of the ultra riders swear by them.
