Opinion: 500 Euros of Freedom
What issues have you had with yours? The stock dart 2 has been swapped out for an older talas, and the other big change is the wheelset and and cranks that i've done to mine... (mostly just swapping in better parts from a frame that I cracked last year)

This article is so spot on. I have two bikes like this. One my first bike that I really started riding trails on. Its a kona blast I bought it with the $ from the first job I worked and is always a ton of fun to ride. It's such a simple bike that I feel so comfortable on. The other bike is this old road bike I found in the attic when my mom moved. It's from the early 70s and I've only put in enough $ to keep it rolling and shifting decently.

Video: Trail Doctor - How To Replace Your Disc Brake Pads
My road bike from the late 60's is kinda a pain with angled drop outs that slide in... I guess this was before they cared about the relation between the cassette and derailleur pulleys (think b-tension). But even that's not terrible with 2 adjustables.

It's probably a lot easier to check pad wear too.

Mavic Crossmax XL Wheelset - Review
I got a bike with some older(7-10yrs at this point) cross max st's and they've been sweet super light vs stock. No issues with the spokes or hubs and I have yet to open them up (may be a project for this winter). The only complaint is that they are a royal pain to mount up tires by hand. Its doable with a decent tire lever. I have pulled tires off the bead under super heavy loads( jump turns and turning while braking up on the front wheel) with pressures around 20 psi, never had an issue above 25psi

Freedom Chair - MTB for Your Arms
My big concern would be a wheelie bar on the back, that front wheel gets kicked up or something and you're in a world of hurt.
