Hi from Calgary and welcome to the forum.

I just purchased my father a Specialized Sirrus Hybrid, he had many of the same needs as yourself, after many years of enjoying his "10 Speed" he figured it was time to get a MTB for purely comfort reasons.
WE decided that the best thing for him was a hybrid bike offering most of the benifits of a road bike with the comfort level of a MTB.
I think Specialized offer the Sirrus with a disc brake option,I recall a hybrid w/ discs in the store but I'm not 100% sure it was the Sirrus.
I paid about $900 CDN for his Sirrus w/ Vees and I think the bike with discs was about $1100 .

Hope this helps... Go Flames... eventually that is!!
