    Those aren't bikes - just makes - there must be dozens of bikes that fall under your descriptions.

    What bike do you ride now ? Do you like that ?

    You could get a v nice road bike there - perfect for you weekend rides - but I would get one that at least will take crudguards - and preferably full guards - much comfier in the wet.

    You could also get a thick tyre flat bar hybrid - perfect for commuting maybe but not so good for long weekend rides.
