comfort MTB?

Looking for a comfortable MTB. I do very light trail with little roots and gravel roads b mostly paved road riding. I want something more upright like Trek FX but with shocks

Any recommendations?

Thank you

Well a Trek FX is really what amounts to a flat bar road bike. An MTB is going to be automatically be more comfortable due to the fact it has a front shock, fat tires that run lower pressure, and even a bit more upright riding position.
I would just look for a decent mid price Hardtail MTB and get a comfortable( but not too wide) seat put on it.
You will lose some speed and efficiency on paved roads compared to something like the Trek FX, but you will be more comfy.
