I rode down to the beach this morning which was cold and bleak. I took this candid selfie and realized just how how Big-box I was...

Were you perhaps attending a public hanging?

All kidding aside, do these Aldi bikes have a model name? Looks like a better bike than some of those sold in regular bike shops!
What do they cost?

Its marketed as a Crane Premium MTB.The bike was $349 Australian Dollars.
I've had it since September 2015 it's been a fantastic bike as Ive ridden it daily. Good components and I believe built by Polygon. Here is a link to the bike. http://flowmountainbike.com/features/350-bike-in-a-box/

In the old days, spokes were pretty much the weak link, the first thing that usually started breaking after so many miles and so many bumps in the road.

These days, even the bbb's have spokes that can last as long or longer than most of the other componentry, not that much of that stuff breaks for no reason.
I did have to replace parts like shifters and brake levers and rotors that didn't function right when new, and a couple of bottom brackets that wore so fast that they held their adjustment for only a couple of rides. One of the freewheels also had too much play to be relied on, and the forks on both bikes needed additional shielding on their fork legs to keep dirt out.

I haven't broken anything yet on either of this year's bbb purchases after over 800 off-road miles. I did a thorough tension check on all the spokes, making them as even as possible along same-side spokes of each wheel. I realize that at my weight, I am less likely to break stuff than riders who are little or a lot heavier than I.
Still, I use 10mm solid rear axle and better-quality chain for peace of mind.

These are my 650b's:

I love the color scheme on that Huffy.
Oh, and it looks like you can still fit a water bottle or 2 on that, lol. Just kidding man, sharp bikes.
