Submitted by Lyle Owens a Downhiller from Ashland, Oregon, usa

Date Reviewed: June 19, 2011

Strengths:    perfect jumping geometry, light weight for a jump bike but maybe too light

Weaknesses:    Well The frame cracked right behind the headtube on the downtube gusset, after 6 months? i thought jump bikes were built tough my old kona scab took way more abuse than that like 6 years of it at jumps and whistler and all over i only retired it cuz it was a tank but it never cracked that's for sure

Bottom Line:   
if they built the frame tougher id be alot happier right now, everything else seemed great though impressed with the alienation wheels, love the gearing pedals uphills well. If haro refuses to warranty i'll be very surprised i haven't had the bike 6 months yet, haven't done anything that i feel a normal jump bike shouldn't accept without damage, i mean it's meant to be abused a bit right? haro claims to have a lifetime steel frame warranty so lets see how that holds up, however i am skeptical because they define use of their bicycles as riding smoothly with both wheels on the ground. c'mon you sell jump bikes to be abused and then use that line. we'll see, right now i am saddened and disappointed, let's hope they can change that, and lets hope i don't have to get my frame welded (which i may just have to do, it is a steel frame)
