Bottom Line:   
The SR 3.0 will attract lots of looks,thanx to its SR71 inspired frame. The tires dig in extremely well on any track, and have excellent wear, which contributed to the 3.0's excellent steering. The only problem I found with the 3.0 is that u should never, ever go off of any jumps, no matter how small they are. All though most people think thats common sense, just about any bike should be able to take the stress of a small jump. I found that my wheel was slightly bent after i harmlessly went off of a curb. Just doing a wheelie on this bike will make the spokes lopsided, so be aware of this. On the track however, as long as u land right the wheels and spokes will stay intact, but in every race u can expect to go off of something wrong. Everything on the bike holds up excellently, and even if it is caked in dirt, the 3.0 will handle just as well as the day u bought. Haro has managed to make another race winner.

Although this bike may be expensive, it is easy to find it for a low price, especially around september when the new model year replaces the former. Although some people think this is a bad idea because some parts may be different, its the little things that are changed. Grips, seat clamps, etc. It makes no difference. Some people might go as far as to say over that 1 year period that the bike is in a shop, it actually gets weaker. Thats only fiction, and that is never the case. If anything a bike will actually get stronger from the various temperature changes.

This is an excellent bike for anyone that wants to race, to those who just want to have a fully-functional nice looking bike. If u have the skill, this bike will get you into the a-main. Newbies beware, like any bmx bike, there are many settings on a bike that you can change. the Haro SR 3.0 has many of these features. Don't change anything on this bike unless you have racing experience.
