Jamis Dragon 853 Steel...what's it worth?

Here's a link: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...162581766&rd=1

For, say, $200.00 is this frame:

- Worth it
- Not worth it

Thanks

Does the '853' refer to the tubing? If so, it might be comparable to this: http://www.jensonusa.com/store/produ...853+Frame.aspx

Which is $289 brand new, free shipping..

Up to you whether the price difference is worth it for a used frame off ebay.. personally i think i'd go with the new one.

I have a Dragon and would certainly pay more than $200 for the frame.
