I cant speak to tne frame. But if you have been generally satisfied, you mignt consider keeping the frame and upgarding some key parts. Notably wheels and cranks. Wheels and cranks that come stock with mid range bikes generally arent great so upgrading will save you significant weight. More importantly, new wheels will give you a quite an upgrade in ride quality...at least thats been my experience going from narrow stock wheels to wider lighter custom wheels.

Above all said, the upgrades I am suggesting probabaly wont be any cheaper than a whole new bike, but then the wheels that come with your new bike wont be as good as ones you could have built.
