Get a cross bike that fits, and a second pair of wheels and stem for road riding. Get the same width rims and hubs so you dont have to fiddle with brakes and gearshift when you swap wheels. You can have lighter rims on the road wheels. The road stem can give you longer reach and lower bar. Use a locking brake hanger to set the headset bearing preload, so you dont mess the headset when you change stems.
