it sounds like you might be interested in a touring frame, basically a road bike with a slightly relaxed geometry. Check out the difference between a long haul trucker and a cross check for a good example of the difference.

I have read about several other people picking out the windsor tourist from BD and being pretty happy.

As for the brakes, it's all relative. Since you are coming from a bike with side pulls cantis are never going to feel quite as firm
