Access frame?

Anybody have one or hear anything about them?? I'm looking for a cheap aluminum frame to replace my Salsa frame with. 99$ at performance is pretty cheap.

They're fine. About what you'd expect for the price, but solid, and not heavy.

I'm selling the frame. It's gotten to small for me. Plus, I'm gonna use that bike as a local short track bike and a beginner bike for a guy I'm trying to get into racing. Just wanna get something thats a bit more durable. Plus, the Kona is my main race bike right now.

My buddy who races has had two Access frames; he loved them both, raced the 2nd one for half a season until he was 'gifted' with an Epic. Still rides the Epic, has the Access, thinks occasionally about building it back up.

I was also looking at one, but I'm picky as all u-no-whut...the only frame they had left in my size when I had the money was the ugly black one -- dammit, I wanted RED!

I do know they're reliable but not flashy.
