Hi 6sharky9, not to put to fine a point on it but, the Ridge AL\SX2000 series was kinda in a round about way the hard tail version of the S60. The Aluminum Comp was it's own animal, it had a specially formed down tube (kinda trapezoidal-not rounded), and came with a very poor SR Suntour fork and some pretty darn good Shimano triggers.

Everyone here loves these color schemes and the tires work very well for off road work.

Thanks Goose,color matching tires have already been done with fixies but with mountain bikes it is very hard with tire selection and seriously can compromise the ride aspect when you really use the bike for mountains(which I do almost everyday)and mountainous terrain.Both bikes are fully functional with tires that exceeded my expectations and then some.Bought each set for 18 usd in Germany.

Although not technically a BBB just wanted to post this up. I found the frame on CL for $25.00 and did some parts swapping to get this guy on the trails. I didn't weigh the frame before I started building but this thing is incredibly light. It's not in showroom condition by an means but dang this this is a blast to ride and is very flick-able. :D

That's a super slick bike and how lite is the bike?If it is super lite it is probably 7005 aluminum but for 25 bucks that's a super deal. :D

Thanks Purple. Bike weighs in at 31lbs even. The components I have on it probably don't help much in that department. The XCM fork is a nice riding fork but it is a bit of a brick. On the rear chainstay it says it's made of Atomic 13 985 degree heat treated aluminum. Never the less it's my pick of the litter, for now.

Been beating on this bike all year. Hyper Havoc from wally world. Think I paid $129. Upgraded the rear pogo shock and switched to trigger shifter for the back derailleur. That's about it. been holding up pretty well and should last until I'm ready to upgrade.

Wow!... I've read such horrible reviews on the Hyper Havoc, I'm blown away that you're having such good luck with it! Start a thread! Show us how you're making it work for you. I'm interested, and I'm sure some Hyper owners would love to see too! The decal removal makes it look stealth :) Great pic!

More proof of over performing big box bikes.I recommend that at least use ankle high socks when riding in the forest because plants slapping you ankles at high speed isn't a very pleasant feeling. :)
