    Strengths:    frame can be nuked and will not even have a scratch. adjustible fork.tires stick well. rear shock is good.

    Weaknesses:    tires cannot unstick mud at all. chain swings off jumps. a bit heavy.

    Bottom Line:   
    one hell of a bike. im twelve so i can't pull the suspension down that much. tires have good grip on dry terrain but the mud sticks. chain swings a bit but it's easily fixable.i use it mainly for REAL trail riding and not gravel road stuff. i also use it for dirt jumping. if you tighten the fork a bit and really tighten up the back then it's a really good jumper. might upgrade the fork and both derailers. some stuiped person tried to steel it but i saw them throw a huge rock (the rock was the size of a basketball) and just a tiny dent happend. half an inch into the top tube.(like if you were superman and you took your thumb and made a imprint.) all in all, this bike kicks ass!!!

    Strengths:    The x6 has a alloy frame made for strength and also control.Its a pretty light bike and has pretty straight parts and components for the good price. it can handle alot of hell before an upgrade but after a few upgrades like Wheels,bigger fork, maybe hydraulic brakes and you'll be striaght.

    Weaknesses:    snapped the hangar off in a week of having it but that has nothing to do with the quality of the bike

    Bottom Line:   
    Good strong bike for beginners but can rise to the challenge if you decide to step it up and go bigger the x6 is more than capable after two or three upgrades

    Weaknesses:    Everything except frame! i've changed every single part on the bike after only one year; crankset twice!! wheels, gears and so on.

    Bottom Line:   
    i still guess it's ok for a first bike if you don't wanna spend the money for a real bike.

    Strengths:    Solid frame and great geometry. I turned it from xc to gravity slolom bike. put a fox rp23 shock in the rear that made it a 4 inch bike. I ride HUGE dirt jumps and mild downhill on her. finally had to replace the rear shock mounting bolts after 3 years.

    Weaknesses:    The rear end is a bit wide and if you get too gnar, you can smash your knees. thats with some extreme riding though.

    Bottom Line:   
    This bike is a top of the line shredder. you'll break bones in your body before you break your bike.

    Strengths:    frame is bombproof, rims are tough as single tracks, most of the parts.

    Weaknesses:    fork reallly sucked, wasn't enough travel, and was too stiff, stem was waaaay too long cannot dh with it, rear skipped around on the rough stuff. a little heavy, but oh well.

    Bottom Line:   
    really awesome bike, i know i just complained about it a lot, but really those things were pretty minor. if your new too f.r.-ing it's the bike for you, if not save up for a bullit.

    Strengths:    Even though the brakes are mechanical, you can tune them so they bite. Dependable, just minor adjustable problems arose.

    Weaknesses:    The Nevegal Blue Groove tires dont shed mud well and my rear one tore on a ride. My headtube might have gotten ovalized b/c my bottom bearing plops out. Waiting on Haro whether to get a new frame.

    Bottom Line:   
    Recommend it, just shy of 37 lbs. It wouldn't hurt to lighten, if you have the money.

    Strengths:    This frame has never failed me or had me questioning its integrity, only that of the components installed on it.

    Weaknesses:    Does bob a bit, but it is basically too heavy to pedal quickly up any major ascents anyow... not to mention that you can pretty well contain the issue if you learn how to pedal....

    Bottom Line:   
    I really like this bike and have- on several occasions- found myself spending almost more money on upgrading its components than it is worth...then again, it has never shown that it was not worth the compnents i installed... A fun bike to ride, at a great price, with a bit of versatiltiy for anything from EXTREME xc, to light/smooth freeriding... i can only imagine what an X7 will do....1.5" headtube, 7" travel and an 8" fork capacity....Now that is freeride- and at this point, I'd at least feel safe with Haro producing the bike I could try to kill myself on....I'm on;y rating it a four overall because I know there are better bikes out there- i just haven't found/ afforded them yet....$$$$$$$$$$$$(i wish)

    Strengths:    Very strong frame, wickes welds i really like the stock steup. Brakes are good for around town riding.

    Weaknesses:    Will replace the scram x-7 dont like how they downshift when you huck or your hand slips but it IS fast and good shifting. The rear shock was good for the bike at the price paid, however i am a little bit hardercore than most. Will upgrade the fork and maybe the brakes, kinda like those mechs though. other things like the seat and the handgrips have to go right quick, would suguest something from KONA but that is me, you are you. but seat has to go, will make your aussee numb right quick. Other than that i cant complaine, this bike delivers.

    Bottom Line:   
    The botton line is; get this bike if you are smart. I live this bike (1) for the inexpensive entry cost into the sport (2) the great way it handles in cornering (3) most of the stock components are great, i would recomend pugrading to the Marzocchi Roco and a bommer fornt fork. replace the grips imeadatly. Other than that this is a great bike for the money,(note to prospetive buyer, if you HAVE money like 2-5 grand get a kona colier delux or a kona colair delux. If your looking for the best cheapest bike this is it.
