I keep seeing bikes with front suspension.
that looks bumpy enough that a suspension would help. the other issue with a mountain bike on the road though is the gearing. it may be too slow for the road having 2 small rings up front. have you considered a dual sport hybrid like the Trek DS series? At 38mm the tires might be too narrow but you should be able to have the LBS swap those out for you before walking out the door with the bike.
