Strengths:    Very strong, nice size bars, grippy tires, strong rims, good seatpost. 4 pegs are useful to learn new stunts. Very fast.

Weaknesses:    Weak seat, horrible break levers and break pads, grips tore easily, Huge sprocket, And very VERY HEAVY.

Bottom Line:   
Nice for flatland, racing, vert, street. Do not recommend for dirt. If you plan on riding hard, this is the bike for you. If you are serious about riding, Do not reccomend.

Strengths:    SOLID frame. crazy sticky brakes, smooth headset, hardy paint, strong seat post. Great for terrorizing the streetz, and ripin it at the parks!

Weaknesses:    Rims felt weak, easy to tear seat, weak crank, bars not great, a little on the heavy side, crappy stock petals. I guess being 5'11" and 215lbs doesnt help, when I bought it i was only 150lbs, was a bit heavy then, but I'm use to it now.

Bottom Line:   
the bike is a bit heavier than I am use to but then again this is one of the first I have not broken or cracked! I ride street, vert and dirt. This bike is NOT recommended for dirt by far. Perfect for parks and street. 4 pegs allow for expansion of the skillz. I remember the first time I fell on a 17' half pipe, and thought to myself, "there goes that bike." but when I got over to it... no issues- Super Strong. Great for gettin at those rails, wall riding, flatland, and any thing u can put a wheel or peg on while standing still or on the move! Thanks Dave, for an awesome bike (after customizing and tweaking)

Strengths:    sturdy chrome molly frame. great gear ratios, easy to accelerate.

Weaknesses:    the one piece frame is hevier than most bmx in its class. But to make the bike lighter haro would have to sacrifice its chrome molly frame which would be a huge downfall to the bike.

Bottom Line:   
an excellent bike overall. What it lacks in weight it makes up with its uncomparable speed and agility.

Strengths:    frame, stem, bars, seat, wheels, hubs, seat is comfortable

Weaknesses:    one piece crank
seat gets ripped too easily (soft)


Bottom Line:   
this 2001 haro 540 air is a solid bike at an extremely good price. it's unbelivablly tough,strongly recommended for beginners and average street park riders. once you get good,you will want to change the sprocket (it come with a thin sprocket as most of bmx, if you are serious about riding bikes, get a 6mm or 8mm sprocket), the crank (it come with a one piece, get a three piece), back wheel (i prefer doulbe wall in the front and triple wall in the back-light but strong).once you upgrade these things, it will be an amazing bike. the frame has THE BEST geometry out there for people under 6 feet.

Strengths:    This is a solid bike and the absalute perfect bike for begginers.

Weaknesses:    1 piece crank, sucky pedals, i personally dont like the handlebars

Bottom Line:   
An extremely nice bike and very durable. The main weakness is the 1 piece crank, thankfully the 2002 model has a 3 piece. Many think its heavy and you may feel the same if your a newbie, but this is about average weight for a good bmx bike. Its affordable and highly recomended. like i said ive used the 01, 02, 03, and a lil of the 00 model, and i feel that the 02 is by far the best so if you can id go with that one.

Date Reviewed: December 25, 2002

Strengths:    Comes with strong Alex rims, 3-piece cranks, tektro U-brakes, 4130 Cromoly frame and Fusion metal peddals. Also has a nice Haro saddle, the cool Putty finish and all surface wheels.

Weaknesses:    Seems a little heavy

Bottom Line:   
I am a beginner and this bike seems right for me. It has good solid parts (so the guy in the shop said) that wont brake in a hurry (hopefully), it is a little heavy but not the heaviest i have felt. THIS IS FOR THE 2002 MODEL BY THE WAY.

OVERALL, GET IT IF YOU ARE A BEGINNER LOOKING FOR A COOL HOBBY TO STICK WITH.

Submitted by jsk322 from New Jersey

Date Reviewed: December 16, 2002

Strengths:    I guess the frame is ok, but it's one of the heavier frames out there. I have the 2002 version, so it came with 3-pc cranks, which are pretty good. The stem is also decent.

Weaknesses:    Well, to begin with, the bars bend easily if u try anything big, and the wheels feel like there going to break all the time. The pedals wear down fast, and the pegs are crappy. The bike is heavy as a whole.

Bottom Line:   
This is a good beginners bike, but i found that too many of the parts break easily if u ride hard. It is heavy and it doesn't feel very solid without upgraded parts.

Strengths:    I has a super durable frame. It is the only frame that has lasted me 2 years. I ride street and vert with it and it holds up great.

Weaknesses:    It's only weakness is a one piece crank. I would get it replace with a Haro Oversized 3-piece. I ordered those form DansComp

Bottom Line:   
I you want a good vert/street bike find this model and make sure it is the 2001 model. The 2002 models snap at the head tube.
