If you can forgo the discs, there's another option. Don't know what you will find but, stop regularly at coops and used bike stores and look for older bikes. Most will be built up and ready to ride. You will probably want to make a few changes but the price will be so much lower that won't matter so much. There are many older bikes from small builders out there being sold at prices way below their ride quality.
