Ok, we did get 2 Cannondale street bikes 2 years ago. Great bikes. But my brain is locked in the 50/60s, the timezone of my preteen and teen years when bikes were simple with monkey bars and banana seats were king,lol.. Now its fat tires and mountain bikes and electrics, time moves on and on. We did ride our bikes in the woods then and did not even know we were mountain biking...

I'm in the market for a new bike but I'm really picky. The most comfortable bike for the money that still rides at a good clip in my opinion is a Jamis Coda Comp. It has a Chromoly steel frame and a carbon fork. It weigh 26.5 pounds, so it's not too heavy.

The Jamis mentioned is a hybrid style bike. Bear in mind the 26.5 lbs is for the 15 inch frame. A larger frame will be more weight. The steel frame will be comfortable on streets, as opposed to aluminum frames which give a stiffer ride and transmitting bumps in the road to your body. Will ride ok on a hard packed clay trail. Try out multiple bikes from different brands.

I enjoy my Surly LHT for all kinds of riding. It can be configured in different ways. Very comfortable.

Check out Electra for some classic styles that are still good quality.
