Strengths:    very tought and stong, i ride it 2 skwl everyday rain or shine and i am out everynyt on all types of surfaces. many crashes and not one buckled wheel of bent fork

Weaknesses:    after 3 years the ratchet on the back sprocket went a little hard to freewheel( not alot, i am just picky) but thats not bad as i bought a mongoose back wheel and it broke 3 months later

Bottom Line:   
this is a exelant bike for its money and is easy to maintain and just a quick note this is the old stole frame that must be about 4 or more years old and if the new one is anything like it it is well worth getting for the money

Strengths:    frame forks dropmounts american bb
very strong


Weaknesses:    heavy bad rims 14mm front axle (to big) i hate the sprocket

Bottom Line:   
its a great bike for a good price and is very strong. best for dirt jumps and not so much street because of the rims.
mostley a strong beginners bike for someone who is going to crash but not do huge stunts. you can always modify this bike though. i would suggest a smaller sprocket and new rims.

Submitted by Dave Miller from Endwell, NY

Date Reviewed: August 24, 2004

Strengths:    Extremely strong bike, expecially since I crash a lot. I dont get why some ppl say the rims bend cuz mine have only slightly bent (which is normal). As long as u take care of it the whole bike can take a pretty massive beating without giving much wear n' tear.

Weaknesses:    Weight, it is an ussue. I ride dirt so I dont really have a ploblem with it and i actually can get quite high on this bike, but i can see where riding street would interact with some problems. the gear ratio is more for speed and less power..also..good for dirt but bad for flatland or street. also the rear brakes..dirt i dont use them much but ive been trying some new street stuff and a tougher back brake would come in handy.

Bottom Line:   
I enjoy this bike and it fits my style well but if your more into street then i would deffly get a much lighter bike.

Strengths:    Does very well of high jumps, dropoffs and other big stuff. rides really fast.

Weaknesses:    crank comes loose but other than that everything else is fine.

Bottom Line:   
I think that the Haro backtrail x3 is a great bike to do big jumps, go fast and do a little bit of flatland. The Haro x3 can take alot of falls. It is put together well and the heavy frame makes the bike way more durable. If anybody wants to get a new bike and they are lookin to spend about three hundred dollars and they are a pretty good rider then they should definelly get the Haro backtrail x3. You will have fun and it will last you a long time.

Strengths:    cheap, strong (frame),14mm axles?

Weaknesses:    crappy rims, stupid tires, bad pedals

Bottom Line:   
this is a update to my review for the x2. Its an okay bike for the cost but I bent the rims (which are double wall) really fast. I also bent the pedals which I had to replace even though there is a warrenty. The tires are pretty crappy too, they wear fast and in odd places. I've had at least 7 flats and i haven't even taken it to the park yet. Bert's bikes has crappy customer service, i brought my broken pedals in and they said "they are too broken" and I would have to replace them. I'm wondering if they will replace my broken tire for free. If you arent too crazy or you like to pose this is an exceptional bike, but if your really going to beat the chilis out of it spend a little more money. Im lowering my score to 3 flamin' turds so that my total score is a 4.

Bottom Line:   
i have a backtrail x2, dont know if theres a difference. Its really heavy, and if you ride street with it the tires slip sometime but is priced well. I would highly recommend some dh gloves with full fingers and some other pads cause im typing with only 8 fingers...
