Hey all,

A friend of mine is looking for a bike - his first bike in years. Naturally I have been pressed into service to help him find something suitable. He wants a "cross between a road and mountain bike", which he will use primarily on pavement and the occasional dirt road, so I'm thinking either a cyclocross bike with more road-ish geometry, or a mid-80s- type steel bike that can fit larger tires (30-32mm). Presumably he doesn't want to spend too much. Anybody have anything suitable, around or under $700?
