    Bike

    I currenty have a trek 1200 road bike. I don't think a road bike suits my riding style beacuse I like to look up at the scenery and get saw back from being bent over. Most of my riding is done on sealed bike paths and some on the road. My of the tracks I ride on have steep hills which are perfect for mountain bike.
    I did have a mountian bike but it got stolen.

    Would it be worth puting slicks on the mountain bike for road use?
    Would it be worth considering a hybird bike?
    I want clipless peadals on the bike. I have some road bike shoes from my trek 1200 I could use on the mountian bike?

    do you want suspension?
    yes slick tires would help alot.
    if you arnt going off roading to much then a hybrid bike or cyclecross bike would be nice.
    no idea.

    Get some dual purpose semi slick/knobby tires, then you can go anywhere.

    Probably not, hybrids can go on or off road, but neither very well.

    They should work fine.
