Strengths:    I bought the frame only,off ebay without knowing much about mountain biking. I had just started biking and being not the youngest any more my hardtail was beating me up.After riding the Haro now for about a year and having slowly replaced and upgraded most of the components....I really love this bike,it rides smooth and quiet,climbs well and goes down the hill very confidently.I have not had any problems and I can highly recommend this to anyone that needs a reliable and inexpensive bike that will do it all.

Weaknesses:    rear suspension stiffens a little under hard breaking, doesn't really bother me much but I thought it's worth saying.

Bottom Line:   
Great Bike,buy it You'll like it !!!!!!

Strengths:    light weight, good components & eye candy ;)

Weaknesses:    haven't found one yet

Bottom Line:   
This is my 1st FS bike so I don't have anything to compare this with. I've been looking for awhile at all different types bikes and when I came across this I couldn't argue the price point of the bike.

I've looked at Banshee: Pyre & Rune, Transition: Covert, Giant: Reign 1 & 2 & Cannondale: Moto 4 but they were 2-3X the price. I already knew the Haro name from my BMX days so I didn't need convincing on that. All I really needed to do was to test ride it.

The bike shop wasn't helpful on the bike setup so I did some research online. Set my sag @ 10mm and I'm luv'n the ride, climbs way better than my hardtail. Wanna see what happens when I change the amount of sag?

I figure with the $$ I'm saving I could build up the bike & as I become a better rider I can start looking for a ride specific bike.

Strengths:    Nice bike, I've been surprised in it's weight and how well it decends

Weaknesses:    Not the best on steep Climbs, I want to upgrade to a RP23 but that's just me

Bottom Line:   
Pretty nice bike. I will be upgrading it as the season and wear goes on. Bought it for fun on longer races. A hardtail is great on a short event but this is a comfy bikes

Question for Sonix Comp 2009 owners

Does your rear shock (Fox Float R) has builtin ProPedal feature? If it does then there should be red square on the shock's side with 3 bars painted on it. Two bars have some dark color, one bar is white. Which bar is white on your shock? The shortest one? The medium one or the longest one?Read More »

I'm really liking the '08 sonix comp - owners sound off...

...any thoughts from those who have or have ridden? Going from old klein hardtail...first FS for the geezer. Northeast; ride pretty much everything...wheels on the ground.Read More »

Xeon Comp or Sonix Expert

Hi All, I've been checking out the Haro forum since having stopped in my LBS and talking to the dealer. I'm looking to replace a worn out hard tail with FS. Primary use will be trail riding , occasional XC race, and working up to the Mohican 100. Also no jumping or drops. Really prefer the beefi ... Read More »
