    1200 is almost what it was new. There is no way it's worth more than half of of what it was new. It's over 10 years old

    Look for quality in your wheels and hubs. Everything else can be dealt with later much either and for much less cost. Buying a new bike with a 9spd drive train doesn't seem realistic to me these...
