Here's what I'm thinking of so far from Trek: http://www.trekbikes.com/us/en/bikes/compare/#/police,3900disc,montare
The Police model, the 3900 series, or something in the Fisher Dual Sport line. First 2 are Mountain Hardtails. No mountains here in FL, hence looking at the Fisher Dual Sport line since they're for bike paths.
The local bike store's stock is mainly Trek, but I'm open to any suggestions on bikes from other companies. Been years since I've been on one!
