    I was at walmart today and I saw a 29 inch bike with a nice frame with a little time of breaking this bike in it could be a really nice one I think it was only 130 dollars too!

    That is a nice frame for motorizing and the price is good too... do you know if it's aluminum or steel?

    Still a really good frame to build from... just wouldn't be able to weld on it and a little extra care needs to be given to how it's mounted.

    If your at Walmart, and want a 29", check out the Huffy Millenial.

    Its only $119 ($10 less), steel frame (not aluminum) looks like a Cranbrock, has 29" tires, with heavy duty 12 gauge spokes!

    hard to count in that pic, but 36 spokes are rare on 29ers & hills get harder to climb with the bigger wheels too

    Yup... 36 spokes on a 29er makes it a lot easier to motorize... also very true, the 29er won't climb hills as well as the 26" bikes unless you go to a larger rear sprocket...
