Here's what I've decided on after shopping and test riding.

Steel frame with carbon fork or alum frame with suspension seatpost.
Relaxed geometry.
No lower than 105 Shimano with a XT rear D and 32 low gear.
Discs are optional.
MSRP of $1300. I want to buy used.

you said you want used, and your budget is $1300-----you got no problems---you can get a really nice bike on ebay for that amount, just need to spend some time looking.

i recently posted a trek that was selling for $600 on ebay (not mine), if its ur size, buy it then upgrade if you wish----youd have a lot left over to upgrade with.

try this

or this

You can then buy a Suspension seat post if you wish, better off to just get good wheels and tires.

Add this

to the 2004 Redline frame above and you have brand new, with 105 10 speed. Seems like a good bet.

I had a Teesdale years ago! Nice bike even though I didn't face the bb and crossthreaded the bottom bracket. That was Life Lesson #213: don't be too cheap and not face the frame.
