Don't get too far into the weeds. Get the FX 3. It will do just about everything well except swap to drop bars, and some people manage even that. Every part on it is perfectly standard and you can replace it or slightly upgrade it forever.
FX3 is nice but it has a shock that's a useless and heavy accessory if his local streets/roads are decently maintained and the OP isn't going on trails. That's why I recommended the Raleigh Redux.

Giant Toughroad SLR 2 is another good rigid go-anywhere option that takes big tires and isn't encumbered with a shock.
