Thanks for the warm welcome everyone. I own a 15+ old trek mtn bike and part of me was thinking of putting on some less aggressive tires and ride that until I figure out what I want in more detail.
I was looking at road bikes w/flat bars such as the specialized sirrus, trek fx, giant rapide, etc.... One worry that I have about getting a specific road bike is that I have to travel 1/4 a mile on a sometimes-poorly maintained dirt road before getting to the pavement. I'm not sure if anyone else has had experience with this. 10 wheels, thanks for the note about the drop-bar bikes being less stressful on the back than I assumed.
