I'd suggest deciding to make the purchase, then waiting until a Really sweet deal came along ... something well-maintained, not ridden too hard, low-mileage ...

I got this, seven years old, hardly a scratch, Industry Nine wheels ... satisfyingly under four figures because I waited for the right moment and seized it when it came.

Wait for a better deal ... a 25-year-old entry-level bike will probably make you unhappier than you are now.
