How wide are your mountain bike tires? Better than the 2.35"? (you don't need knobby tires for the playa)
Could be that your $10 bike with new tires are the best bet, and it allows you to keep your nice mtb away from the playa dust.
The Big Apples are rather expensive, but online some places charge a lot less than others and ship cheap with the USPS.

And with the increased interest in Fat Bikes and Cruisers, there are more options out there.
