Strengths:    2003 year model is a Chromoly frame per Bikepedia information Backtrail X1. Frame is sturdy. Freewheel & bottom bracket seem to have held up fine for 7 years. Chain is in good shape too.

Weaknesses:    The bike I have was converted to brakeless. Was chromed and prior owner didn't do a very good job painting over chrome, currently I am refinishing it with primer & paint. The one piece crank is definitely archaic, but functional. The resin pedals, and no pegs with this one. Rear wheel isn't true, perhaps abused by prior owner(s). Grips needs to be replaced.

Bottom Line:   
Since mine was free, how can it be a bad bike. Has a ton of good features, but it's also lacking on some of the modern tech components that have improved bmx over the past 7 years. After I get the finish squared away, I'm certain the way I ride it, it should last as long as I'll ever want it to and provide years of trouble free and reliable service. When I first rode it, I wasn't enamored with brakeless, so I'll get that squared away too.

Strengths:    It's a great bike and has really good endurance. The original tires don't wear out easily and when I first bought it I loved it! It was my first bike and it was really easy to use - no technical gizmos or gadgets like most bikes!

Weaknesses:    It doesn't have a kickstand so the handlebars get really beat up from being set on the ground unless you have a good place to put it. Also it doesn't have the best shocks so I wouldn't try anything to risky on it - especially if your a guy! My breaks also wore down very quickly and made it hard to stop.

Bottom Line:   
It's a great beginner bike and if you're more professional biking then you should get one of the newer versions of a Haro! If you like biking then this bike is for you - and if you're thinking of selling one don't make the same mistake I did! Don't sell it cheap!

Similar Products Used:   I've used the Haro Backtrail X3 (my friend has one - though it recently got stolen) - and it was really good. It's practically a new and improved version - it has better shock absorption and a kickstand. The X3 also has a better break system.

Strengths:    This bike has a great frame, it is strong and dependable. The rims aren't bad but i would get triple walls. Bars are great, and so it mostly everything else.

Weaknesses:    Resin pedals need to go, get magnesium or aluminum. Get 3 pc. although these 1 pc. aren't bad.

Bottom Line:   
This bike is great for anyone, i don't care how good you are. This thing has proven it self to out perform, and last anyother bike. Great value and great bike!!!

Strengths:    Good Frame, Wheel set is ok, made from Haro, you can always expect quality when you buy from Haro. Good Handlebars.

Bottom Line:   
This is an overall great bike. Sign up for ebay, and you could get this bike for hella cheap like I did. I would reccomend this bike to everyone.
