Opinions on decent "budget" bike?mtbiac

I'm looking to purchase the most bike I can for around +/- $700. I will defenitly be purchasing something used so I can get the most for my money, and I will be selling it within 5-6 months. Bike is mainly for training, riding with friends, etc. Anyways, what would you guys/gals suggest?
I found a good deal on a Raleigh R600 used. How is this bike? It has 105 component group, Alex DA-28 rims, etc. Here is a link to the bike, the used one is a 2002 too.

Any opinions on this bike or any others that would suit me well? thanks alot,

The Raleigh is a pretty nice bike IMO. The only question is the wheels. One guy I met rides one and the wheels have held up fine but I still worry about low spoke count conventional wheels. I say go for it as long as it's in good condition.

Enjoy!
