- £400 (ish) top price
- hydraulic disc brakes
- braze-ons or equivalent to mount a rear rack
Happy with 27.5 or 26 (if they still exist...), don't want 29s, frame M/~17"

However £150 will get you a complete new Deore groupset, £250 with discs. I'd consider transplanting that onto the existing bike if you find it comfortable and don't need to pay for a new frame, bars, stem, saddle etc.
