Strengths:    Solid entry level mountian bike. The price is perfect and most of the components are the same as the big names such as Trek, Specialized and GT

Weaknesses:    Upgrade the pedals and the fork in the future.

Bottom Line:   
Great entry level mountian bike. Haro stands behind there products and value customer input. I did alot of research and compaired many bikes, the Haro has held up very well so far. I used to ride a Trek 4500. After riding the Haro, I'm pretty sure that all I got extra with the Trek was the name and paying an extra couple hundred dollars for the Trek decals. The best bike for your money

Strengths:    Stock Haro Pivit parts are not that heavy, seat is really comfortable, price for the specs, fit and finish, looks

Weaknesses:    Suntour can't get their act together

Bottom Line:   
I got this bike for $480 from LBS. I was prepared to spend a little more, but I got on it and it just felt right.

I've taken it on several single track runs now, and it really is amazing how a sub $500 bike performs. The lockout forks are great for road or smooth trail. The gears are sharp. I just can't get enough of it.

So the weird (nothing bad)... The forks. The website says they are not lock-out... The pics say it is. Mine is, but who knows? The lockout fork usually doesn't show up until you hit the $650 price range.

Also weird... Suntour or Tektro this time, who knows? Comes with 160mm rotors. I switched them to 180mm without any adapter modification... Way better performance. I don't know WHAT to make of that!

As a bonus, the stem, bars and seat post are really not crap. I took a set of bars and stem from a comparable Specialized, and the bar + stem weight was 1kg... Bar and stem for the Pivit set was half that

The seat is really nice, haven't even wanted to change it.

Bike weighs ~ 33lbs stock (weighed with scale at home).

Nothing else to add. Just about the best $500 I've ever spent on a toy.
