Go to a reputable local bike store, tell them what you say here, and they will absolutely be able to help you out. I ride on asphalt/cement mainly and also on hard dirt bike paths. I have a mountain bike, but I have to bend over quite a bit to get to the handle bars. I'm going to buy a new bike this winter and am going to look at more of a cruiser...but something I can ride on hard dirt bike paths as well. But I want something more comfortable for riding on the road. I am also going to get extended handle bars so I put less stress on my lower back.
