Parents have suggested i get a road bike for crimbo which i am happy with they will commit £200 towards it and i have to fund the rest from relatives and my own pocket.

I have just now given them my idea of buy a decent hardtail and get a set of road tyres for it so i can use it off and on road.

If i went the latter of the routes it would be used for use on road,commuting, trails such as singletrack and very light downhill and small jumps. and would need 9 gears no more no less well maybe 7

So do you think road or hartail and road tyres?

I have in mind

Orange crush
Cube Analog
and other suggestions you could give me?
Also if you prefer the second option what choice of road tyres?

budget
no less than 500 no more than 1k but will strect an extra 200 if it realy is good

many thanks
