Usual cycle2work related gubbins I'm afraid.

I've trawled through the forum and it seems the Orange P7 and Genesis Altitude are pretty well thought of. Obviously it comes down to what feels right in the shop but I wondered if anyone had any other suggestions steel framed HT's for that price bracket?

I'm willing to entertain the idea of an Alu frame but I feel a need for steel! :D
(And no, I'm not going to Halfords, I don't care how good a review the Boardmans get, my last experience with that crowd of numpties was a painful experience that I don't care to repeat!)
