Just browsing (dangerous I know) and you can now get a Zaskar for less than £500 these days..

Fairly cheap parts but you could use it as a good platform to upgrade. It's not great but for £480 compared to bikes that RRP at that price worth a shout I'd reckon.

I still find the level of spec on this price level to be rather poor.

MAybe taking the angle that Cannondale used to take, sell a good frame with a fairly low spec at an affordable price. giving you the option to upgrade.
