which hybrid for £500 sorry but any help is much appreciate

edited April 2008 in Road beginners

sorry about yet another what bike etc etc but i'm looking for some guidance for my father, who is mid 50's and looking to buy a hybrid for the about the £500 mark. He's mainly using it for enjoyment and getting fitter than commuting everyday. He's had 2 discs removed from his back so ideally something that isn't too rigid like a standard roadie and obv drops are out of the question. any ideas on a good bike for the money? hopefully he can join me on some rides so something that isnt like cycling a tank. :lol:

any feedback gratefully recieved

    what about the boardman bikes available at the larger Halfords.

    edit : comp is £400 and team is £500 , both well reviewed.

    How about a Ridgeback T1? Roadie with flats, very light and nippy, takes mudguards. £350.
