Date Reviewed: October 9, 2009

Strengths:    Haven't had any issues but only 3 months in so far. Ride twice a week about 10 miles every ride. Bike rolls fast, shifts great, Dart 3 is working great now that it's set to be more stiff, great starter and love the hydraulic disc brakes.

Weaknesses:    Bike comes standard with the Kenda Small Block 8's which are good. Not the desired traction that I want but they roll awesome which is great to help this newbie keep up. Replaced with Kenda Nevegals. Make sure the Dart 3 Shock is set right, I'm 230lbs. and went over the handlebars twice. Blaming it on the shock being set too soft. Mostly my fault though since I am new and learning.

Bottom Line:   
Love it and love riding. Will definitely stick with HARO and go for full suspension as soo nas I am ready.

Well, I finally got enough money (tax return) to get back into the riding game after about a 5 year hiatus. So I went to my local bike shop a couple months ago, and after browsing through some catalogs, I purchased me a black Haro Flightline Expert. The bike is great. I have also been an upgrading f ...

Just got the 08 Flightline Expert

But my dealer showed me the Haro, and I had at least a pretty good idea of th ... Read More »
