Budget 29er shootout

Hey, someone has to have compared all the cheapo 29er framsets out there. Got a link to a thread, blog, etc?

I'm thinking of the ones made by Performance (Access), PricePoint (Sette), Motobecane, etc. Maybe throw On-One in there too? I can find reviews that talk about one particular bike, but very little information that compares one to another.

I had a Karate Monkey that was a little small for me, so I sold the frame and plan to transfer everything over to a new bike as soon as I can afford it. But my budget will be limited! I'm looking to spend $250 or so at very most.

If you have any resources that would point me in the right direction, I'd very much appreciate it.

I don't know of any website that does that. I own a Motobecane Fantom 29 and I am very happy with it. Sorry I can't be more helpful. I'm interested in seeing if somebody out there has found what you're looking for!

Here is a link that talks a little about the subject, pictures of several nice Access 29er builds.

Sweet! Thanks. Now if Performance would only get that $99 frame in stock again, in my size....
