have you considered a used frame?
when I started in the woods for handling improvement, I put a set of spacialized tri-cross tires (700x28) on an older road bike I had, along with a bar-end shifter for the rear, and kept the downtube for the front der. the clearance was minimal, but as long as I stayed away from heavy mud it did the job.
the following winter, I got a used Cuevas, which was a very nice steel frame...very comfy given the use...just transferred all the parts over with some canti-brakes.
now I have a gunnar x-hairs
