    Strengths:    frame tolerates a lot of abusing, simply indestructable, great value for money, solid components

    Weaknesses:    weight! (42,5 lbs with DH tubes), suspension could be softer, stock Pivit grips wear out fast

    Bottom Line:   
    Haro X7 is really strong and tolerates almost everything. Whole bike is really good value for the money. But, on the other side bike is really heavy for all-mountain riding and aspeccially for the climbing. It works well for freeride and softer downhill. Rear shock could be softer, changing spring helps a little.

    Strengths:    The frame is just indestructible and it looks good as well, the whole set up is pretty awesome as well.

    Weaknesses:    Have not found any yet

    Bottom Line:   
    I havn't had this bike for to long but I love it so far and have had no problems with it except for those below. I did buy it secondhand and had to fix a spoke and clean out the fork but that was no problem. So if you want a descent bike that you can ride up the hill and then take it back down doing some 10-foot drops on the way with no problems then this is the one for you.

    Strengths:    price, beefy frame, handles great with a 7' fork

    Bottom Line:   
    great bike for the price. does everything, hucking, pedaling up hill even with single ring. it handles better than the bikes i rode with my setup and its really easy to bunny hop on too, i also ride to the trails on it and its not a biggy

    Strengths:    Not pricy.I can't categorize it to all-mountain because it can handle freeriding and downhill courses.


    Weaknesses:    Color. I've changed it to white. Some OEM parts such as the brakes(juicy5), rims, stem, and cranks. The fork feels a little soft.

    Bottom Line:   
    Worth every penny. The bike can handle everything you threw at it. Not a famous brand in MTBiking but a good bike to start with. Accommodating customer service though i am overseas.

    Strengths:    it handles really good and can handle big jumps because of the large travel and is so hard to snap or crack

    Weaknesses:    it some times creaks and at first your seat will hit the wheel no matter how big the jump is and the crank breaks easy

    Bottom Line:   
    yea basically if you want a bike that can handle big jumps and going down any hill after a while then this is a cheap bike for that job

    Strengths:    Everything looks fine. It's my 1st full suspension bike though. Can't judge really fair. But I like the way it eats trails and drops. Really easy to get used to Fox Van R.

    Weaknesses:    Avids Juicy 5- bit weak

    Bottom Line:   
    It's my first full suspension. Think it's a nice startup. It works well for me. Eats trails, drops, steps. Looks evil.
    Nice bike for even easy DH. Cool to freeride on.

    Strengths:    amazing bike as is beautifully crafted machine that can be built for all mountain or heavy freeride. i chose the freeride path.

    Weaknesses:    the stock shock. my bike is an 06 so i had a manitou metal. it will do for the first season but u willlll want another one. i chose the swinger 4 way. it makes the bike a lottt more plush and absorbes bumps with ease.

    Bottom Line:   
    this bike is fricken tight!!!! it handles great performs great and looks great. this is a sick deal. i highly suggest buying this bike if your riding is a bit on the wild side.

    Bottom Line:   
    I really like this bike. the parts spec is bangin for 2k. just jack the seat up your ass and pump it all the way to the top of the hill, it isnt that heavy. as far as going down? it hauls. i havent had the chance to hit up any resorts yet, but im confident it will get the job done. drops feel great and it begs to be ridden!

    Strengths:    well im a huge fan of sram. so naturally i was pleased to have the x9, juicys, and the totem. most all the parts are good on this bike. the suspension works very well. the springs in the fork are spot on for my weight (160lbs.) and the medium size feels true and fits great

    Weaknesses:    the rims. they plain suck. unfortunately the front tacoed on the very first run on this bike and i ended up having to spend some extra cash to get some wtb laserdisc fr rims laced up. there also was an issue with an employee of haro suggesting they might give me a new rim/wheel and turning around and saying they dont handle the rims since they are sun ringle. kind of sad that they wont help me with something they sold.

    Bottom Line:   
    this bike is awesome. unfortunaley i had a bad experience with an employee of haro and i doubt i will do any more business with them. regardless this is a good bike just be willing to invest in some rims that are worth a crap.

    Strengths:    Strong, durable frame. super power full brakes (hayes 9)strong cranks, good gaers (sram x7)

    Weaknesses:    Rear shox (van R.) it tops out all the time, Forks craked when I first jumped it (by the 20mm alxe) the rims bluckled to easily and the chain broke when I did a drop. there was no reason for it to.

    Bottom Line:   
    The haro X7 frame will take any thing and some componants, a few things I would recomend changing dew the weakness of them.
