Yeah, the 'new stuff' hype is hard to ignore - I guess maybe the 'Five Year Plan' frame, just something that is worth replacing (or servicing and tuning) suspension parts on, and actually worth wearing out a cassette on.  To me, I respect the grizzled old souls on older bikes that have barely any stock stuff left on them, but the frame has clearly seen use.   Part of me also just wants used bikes to be an inherently better value, although Marin and Polygon absolutely crushing the game in the <$2500 realm has probably made that concept debatable.
