I've had a few road bikes, I have had a hybrid bike and a few years ago bought a Trek feet forward design bike. Some advantages/disadvantages to each one but I still have not found that all in one bike.
I'm looking for a bike that can get to a decent speed (13-16 mph - I know that is also rider dependent), something with some heavy duty tires (I'm sick of getting flats on my road and hybrid bikes), something where I can use a thick seat like the kind on my Trek bike ( prostate problems with the road bike seats and I've tried them ALL), a geometry that puts me somewhere in the middle of comfort and an aggressive posture, I'd prefer the mountain bike type handlebars. I would consider a mountain bike as it seems that may fit most of the above but I have no experience riding them. However,this would be used for road usage - no off-roading
Finally, I would like to have the option to use clip on pedals as well as regular pedals. It would be great if they had a pedal that could accomplish both or have clip on, on one side and a regular pedal on the other.
Any suggestions on which bike to try out? Or maybe I'm asking the impossible.
Thanks for your help
