Strengths:    light, taken some decent sized hits, held up fine. has a little bit of fatigue goin on but the frame is a 2000 model, so take that how you will. mine doesnt have the carbon seat stays, but it still is awesome. the blue looks much better than the gold too

Bottom Line:   
cool frame, got a heck of a deal, cant beat $10.50
i love ebay. this bike is pretty much my child.

Strengths:    -light
-carbon seat stays should absorb more shock
-nice design, good looking frame


Weaknesses:    -not sure how the carbon seat stays will hold up with a heavier rider
-appears paint job chips easy


Bottom Line:   
Although I only bought the frame and built it up from there this is a great bike and no complaints so far. Looking at the specs on the complete bike it has great components and the Manitou R7 100mm fork it comes with is top notch. Again, the paint although very cool in the gold finish is probably going to chip easily. The Haro site has an MRSP of $2400 and compared to other bikes out there this is a good deal.
This is a x country type bike and if you plan on taking it on punishing trails/dropoffs then I would predict the carbon seatstays will snap like toothpicks. If you want to get a x country race ready bike then pick one up today!

He is 5’5” and the frame is 13.5 and I am afraid it might be too small fo ... Read More »
