theres a nice looking norco a-line on ebay for £550 or a couple of marin quake 7.0 freeride bikes for around 700 might be worth a look mate

Check out the February issue of MBUK. They 'Wrecked & Rated' budget bikes and the Halford's Carrera Vulcan won by a mile. That would seem like a good bet for your price range.

I rented a Cannondale Gemini for a couple of days, in 2008. It was a Gemini 2000. It felt mad high at the front and BB, and suffered badly from 'brake jack'. But for £250, maybe worth a punt?
