You stated that you don't want a mt. bike, but then you looked at a Cannondale Road Warrior. Did you happen to notice the "Bad Boy"? What the Bad Boy is, is essentially a mt. bike w/o suspension and 1" tires on it! Basically a hybrid, and that's what you're looking at.

What I'm trying to say is that you can take a decent mt. bike in your price range and put on a pair of 26 x 1.0" or up to 1.5" slick tires on it! Viola, a sturdy bike with high pressure (less rolling resistance) tires.

This may open up more options for you and may get you into a more comfortable riding position!

BTW, the Bad Boy has a MSRP of $799.99, but you can get a lot of mt. bikes in the $500-700 range!

Just trying to "THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX".

Also, bikes made by GIANT, TREK, GARY FISHER,....etc. have bikes similar to those mentioned and deserve a looksie!
