I strongly recommed you to consider FirmaSite <http://theme.firmasite.com/> as
your parent theme. You can customize it with Child
Basically its using *ONLY* Bootstrap for WordPress, BuddyPress and bbPress.
And those plugin's css files are removed! only bootstrap!
That means you can add new bootstrap styles to system with child-themes and
your all WordPress, BuddyPress and bbPress will use your new bootstrap
style. Do you need dark theme? no problem. Still same rules.

Here is 2 example child-theme:
http://shop.theme.firmasite.com/  (Didnt release yet. Will be my first
premium theme. WooCommerce support and BuddyPress + WooCommerce
integration! )

Basically, its good codes theme and its best for Bootstrap + WordPress.
There is no any other theme that only using bootstrap components and
disables BuddyPress, bbPress ad woocommerce custom css.
