$200 went a lot further 20 years ago. My Mtn bike from 20 years ago was just over $400 new and still had the original chain, cassette, chainrings, etc on it when I gave it away a few years ago. The only thing I ever replaced were cables, a shifter, brake pads and tires. I rode it a lot too, and on real trails. I bet it's still being ridden actually.

Most $200 bikes today are garbage, let alone a $120 bike... to get that level you'd have to spend $400+.
