My Crosstrail Sport Disc 2013 model hybrid bike has been stolen. The current model is now £550 not the £430 my bike cost me. I'd like to buy a replacement for the original price.

My use is road commuting, some very rough roads but mostly good. I'll sometimes ride on towpaths, trails and off road, but never anything difficult that needs an mtb. I learnt from my hybrid bike that I prefer a drop bar bike due to comfort of multiple hand positions. I've got used to the flat bars so would be ok with that too. I was planning to get bar ends for the old bike, before it was stolen. That would be a good alternative to drop bars.

Is it possible to get a good hybrid with hydraulic discs, 9 speed with 3 Chainrings and a reasonable frame like the Crosstrail I had? For £430 that is.
