Strengths:    Price, Frame, 100mm Travel Fork (2013 Haro Flightline Two;26er), Saddle (comfortable)

Weaknesses:    Front Derailleur, Front Brakes (Caliper)

Bottom Line:   
Riding Skills - Intermediate / Trail/Terrain - Advanced

the 2013 haro flightline two;26er retails at $470, with that said, you get a lot for the price compare to other brands. 100mm travel fork, front and rear mechanical disc brakes, front and rear shimano altus derailleur, comfortable saddle, good threaded tires and a reputable company.

after replacing the grips, saddle AND seat post with lighter ones, my bike weighed at 28 pounds. my bike is a 15" frame that weighs 29.5 pounds (stock) comparing to my friends kona kahuna 18"frame;29er, with hydraulic brakes that weighs 29 pounds (stock), then again his bike is $1200 and mine i bought for $420 out the door.

didn't really like the mechanical brakes on this bike..only one caliper pushes the rotor inward and it made my front rotor bend. the front derailleur, will hit the chain if i am on 2nd gear front and 4th gear rear, maybe it just need adjustments?

Strengths:    Geometry, Weight, Components, Overall Build. Good handling in tight stuff, good compromise on gearing (high gears for speed and good low gears for climbing. other bikes (big name brands too) ive riden sometimes havn't got this mix right)
Haro Flightline 2 a good strong fun bike.


Weaknesses:    have to stop and take weight of forks to lockout. not a haro problem, its just the low end suntour forks (which many many manufacturers use). Not a problem unless you are racing, but then id probably leave them unlocked anyway.

Bottom Line:   
A top buy, great componentry for price. Well designed geometry and great fun bike, where ever you use it.

Strengths:    The frame is perfect for me

Weaknesses:    Components not meant for singletrack w/ rocks & roots. Acera derailleurs/ suntour crankset/ fork - biggest problem is dropping the chain ALL THE TIME!

Bottom Line:   
This is a nice bike for railtrails or paved paths, smooth trails. I didn't think I would be riding the way I do- bought the bike & got dragged along on a group ride - loved the rougher trails, now I have the wrong bike. Gonna upgrade starting with the rear derailleur - either XT or x7 or x9.. we'll see. Can't afford the bike I want, but I think the frame is perfect for upgrading.

Strengths:    EZ Fire shifters work great, light frame rides with great control

Weaknesses:    It seems to shift a little rough on the 2nd front gear

Bottom Line:   
Until I bought this bike (at a steal on craigslist) I had never had a really good bike... had always opted for the cheap knockoff's from WalMart. I will never go back to that junk. After 1 hour riding, I've realized that you get what you pay for...

Haro Flightline Two reviews.

I'm new to the world of MTB and I was trying to get some info on the Haro FL Two 26. I use to ride Haro BMX when I was younger so I trust the name but I know they're fairly new to the MTB bikes. None of the local bike shops around carry this bike in stock so it's hard to test it myself. Any input wo ... Read More »

Flightline Two, suggested upgrades?

Hey All I'm new to the forums, and pretty new to mountain biking. A few months back I picked up a 2009 Flightline Two for $600AUD, in matte black of course :) . The first thing I did was swap out the Dinovo tyres it came with for Kenda Small Block Eights. Now I have some money sitting around a ... Read More »
