There is no real comparison of a $200 bike to a $1000+ bike. Even to someone who doesn't know/appreciate the nuances, you would immediately notice how much a $1000 bike doesn't weigh in comparison even to a $500 bike. That is not to say you can't get a very nice, long-lasting and serviceable entry-level bike for $400-500, it's just going to weigh a shitton and the quality won't be as nice.
