So you don't even know how to use the search button. My aluminum frame cracked. Steel frames are pretty good. Don't buy one. You will mess something up and blame it on being made in China. Starting to think you were made in China at a sweat shop and that's what's wrong with you.

Have a nice day and hope this was helpful! 🙃

Spare_Parts basically nailed it.

Its my favorite frame for the price since its cheap, looks killer, and is crazy comfortable. Wheelbase is ~1" longer than a standard cruiser and the comfy seat sits nice and low. Tons of room for both 2stroke or 4stroke builds without running into carb or head clearance issues (although the choke on a 4stroke setup will come close to frame and is a bit of a pain to use).

On the down side, you first have to check if its steel or aluminum(you want the steel one), the wheels are TERRIBLE, and at higher speeds the front fork isn't very stable. I notice it gets a bit sketchy around 40mph. For the low price though you get a relatively strong frame with great geometry, a super comfortable seat, wide tires, and some long raised bars. Swap the wheels ASAP, remove at least the front fender, and if you plan a performance build throw a triple tree fork on it.

You must be a low rider or a midget that seat is so low suppose to be up by your hip, might try to reposition see if rides better.

You only need the seat to crotch height if you are trying to pedal all the time for proper ergonomics, if you don't plan on pedaling much, putting yourself at the lowest point is best for the center of gravity.

Its super comfy, I am 6' and put the seat low and layed back. This pic is before I painted the exhaust but shows my seat post position...one of the most comfortable bikes I have and I've used tons of frames. I think the ONLY bike I would replace this with would be a Dyno cruiser but they are hard to find and expensive.

I will probably hunt down another steel Hyper for a dropped and stretched show build since this one is really just a project/parts test bike.

I'm probably using my hyper for a test bed too. I like the look but rather build n test motors than multiple bikes of that style. yeah rims are garbage compared to basic mb rims. ill just build a front wheel for it and leave everything else alone.
be a great frame for a customized look.
