Hello, what kind of bike is this?

I am looking for a very specific bike, and have no idea where or who to get it from.

I want a road bike with some suspension and fatter tires. I also want it custom painted and I don't want a single speed bike. Also I want road bike handle bars. Am I describing a touring bike?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Road bikes with suspension and drop bars?
Sounds like you may want a flat bar road bike. The bike shop you get it from will be happy to swap out the bars and shifters and brake levers for extra $$$.
Maybe you should test ride a few bikes before deciding how you want it set up. You may decide you really want a hybrid, or mtn bike, or touring bike, or a standard road bike.

It sounds as if you might want to talk with a frame builder in your area to see if you can come up with your perfect bike.
