You choose the bike

Hi,

Here, there are only pavement and easy trails so a MTB is not an option
Neither is a road bike (for multiple reasons)
I'd love a cyclocross but they don't fit/or are too expensive (my budget is $400-$600)
So I'm left with hybrids
I need a really small one (around 700mm of standover) so here are the ones that fit the bill:
