    Very happy with my bad boy.
    Superb bike.

    As for the thicker tires. 700x32 fits perfect on mine.
    If you go 26" you can go wider

    Should you buy it?
    Go and ride the bike. If its the good size, you like the ride and the price is Ok, then go for it.

    I have no experience with the headshock, so maybe someone else van reply in that

    Thanks buddy!
    Would 200-300 be good money to spend on this? And also it has a battery where the water bottle is suppose to be, connected to a strong light on the handlebars should I keep that? Thanks for your help pulsar please keep helping me I'm a noob.

    2001 Bad Boy Ultra Project - DONE

    Finally assembled the BBU project bike. Its got a 10s double front mech and 9s rear.....shifts so smooth on the road - I just completed a fast 30mi on it:

    Wheels: Velocity Blunt SL 29er American Classic disc hubs
    Shifters: SRAM X0 9s twist shifters
    Rear Derailleur: SRAM X0 9s
    Chain: SRAM PC-1091R 10s
    Brakes: Magura Marta SL hydraulic disc - 160mm rotors
    Cranks: FSA Energy 46-36 10s
    Front Derailleur: FSA Energy 10s
    Saddle: Fizik Gobi w/ ICS tail light
    Pedals: Crank Brothers Candy 4TI
    Cassette: Shimano XTR CS-M960 11-34
    Bottom Bracket: Shimano XTR BB-9700
    Grips: Yeti/ODI Shorty Lock-on
    Tires: Vittoria Rubino Pro 3 700c x 25

    Here is what is looked like, when I found it at a garage sale....paid $30 for it, rusted solid Headshok and all. Final weight is 19.81 pounds/9.1kg....with barely any carbon at all:

    Yes. The decals and logos were not too bad - so I masked them all off, scuffed up the old paint and resprayed in Satin Black automotive engine enamel. I baked the enamel in low heat for 4 hours and let the frame air cure for about 9 days. The fork was touched-up, using Revlon Black Star nail polish - which matched the fork PERFECTLY. It's still not 100% factory finish....but more like 95%. The OEM Dupont Imron paint was an ideal base coat, for the engine enamel cover-up.

    I didn't want to mess with powdercoating, simply because the high-heat PC process may compromise the integrity of the T6 heat-treated, 6000-Series aluminum. I also did not want to do a full strip/primer and body shop spray, due to cost. The savings from acquiring the frame/fork/bars all went towards the components and full fork rebuild....to the tune of about $1300! But, that cost got me a 19-pound, bad-a$$ Sport Hybrid/Commuter now.

    What's the ideal locking product/method for this bike?

    Go to your local bike shop(LBS).....and ride TODAY. You need a new Presta Valve inner tube. While there - also get a brass, screw-in Presta adapter, so you can use any gas station pump.

    Just RIDE IT. More experience will dictate what your preferences will be.

    More riding will determine if you even like the existing saddle, shifters, etc. The bike may be too big or too small....before you start changing stuff - feel the bike out first.
