I just sold a decently nice '92 XO-1 with mix of high-end and original parts for $850. $1000-$1500 for a thrashed XO-2 seems wildly optimistic.

Agreed! I paid this same price for a set without those cool guy pads just a few weeks ago! Timing was not on my side. GLWS.

My nod would be towards the 520, if the fit is OK for you. They were offered in pretty limited sizes.

As noted before, the CC is an OK, jack of all trades but master of none kind of bike. That 520...
