Well when I bought it about 5 years ago it was a cheapo 26" Next Gen hard tail, 6061 alum. frame from wall mart but I have since taken it apart and re-vamped it with new better stuff part by part custom paint and so on. I use it for bike patrol at a college I work at and average about 20-30 miles a day on it while working and ride 10-20 on my off days so all and all it's a good little light hard tail frame that has held up to allot of miles and abuse. The next plan I have in the near future is some rockshox dart 2 forks to smooth out the front a little as long as I can find them for a good price and making some studded tires for this winter. I am torn though on using steel rivets & washers or the screws shown in this how to Studded Tires: Make your own in 7 easy steps any pref's from anybody?

Try posting your rivets vs screws question in the Bicycle Mechanics forum. I'm sure they can help you there.
