I love my Trek Navigator (300) comfort, but it doesn't have skinny tires and it does have grip shifters. As mentioned, you can skip the tires for now and replace them. I put 1.5" wide smooth tires on mine. You can probably get a changeout to rapid fire shifters too for a little more money.

When I was testing all the different models, I remember one that did have rapid fire shifters, but I can't remember now which one. I think it was either Raleigh or Giant.

Don't be in a hurry....just go to many different bike shops and tell them your requirements. They'll be happy to show you what they have. Call ahead of time to see what brands they carry. No sense going to all shops that sell same models. Try them all out and then go with the one you like the best.
