I guess the key to your questions is exactly how you define "mostly" on pavement. A cyclocross bike is good on pavement and also on some trails. A road bike limits you pretty much to just pavement. Unless you think you might get into serious road riding, I would say you can't really go wrong with cross. You can always put smooth tires on it. Some good options are the LeMond Poprad, Surly Crosscheck, Jamis Nova, and Kona Jake the Snake. All have received good marks on this board, each one is a lttle different from the others.

Have fun!!
