I have about 1200 bucks "all in" with my bicycle. I got a top of the line Staton kit with a Mitsubishi TLE 43 and put it on a fairly nice $500 Specialized hybrid/29er with a nice front suspension fork.
I wouldn't do it any other way. I know lots of folks don't have that much money to spend on a bike, but I wanted something I could pretty much beat on and ride WFO for hours on end.
