    Welcome to the forums Matt. I figured some links might help you out in responses, so I've added links:

    K2 Zed Sport Bike '06 for about $220.00
    2006 Motobecane 400HT for about $330.00

    If you don't find anything on Craigslist, I'd suggest the Motobecane of all you've mentioned.

    Hehehe, that's a job for me.
    Get a Hardrock!

    K anywhoo wheelhot is correct, for your price range you will be much better off getting a HT with higher end components. Does not have to be a Hardrock but I strongly recommend them.

    K2 is nice.
    I used to have one and had no problem at all.
    the frame was super strong and very good for money.
    Used to ride BMC SLC01, CAAD, FELT, Cervelo P3 but now I ride FUJI SST and TCR advanced and CAAD9.

    to the OP - K2s are decent bikes for the price, they do a better job than a good number of companies in that lower price range, i feel
