FAO any bike fans (bicycle)

Morking all,

I recently moved into a flat about 4 miles from my uni in Edinburgh city centre, now the traffic here is pish for driving to uni in the morning so im looking for a bike. Ive already got two mountain bikes but they're too heavy for road use really, so im after what they call an "urban" or a "town & trail" bike, as the treck to uni covers road surface as well as gravel along the canal so a pure road bike wouldnt cut it, and a mountain bike is too heavy.

So my problem is that i cant find a decent urban/town and trail bike anywhere. Doesnt seem to be a hugely popular bike type.

Anyone have any recommendations? Im looking to spend 200-500
