Weaknesses:    its a little heavy but not enough to complain about

Bottom Line:   
Its pretty much the BEST bike anyone has ever made! BOTTOM LINE!

Strengths:    Strong Frame,Good Rims,Good Front End

Weaknesses:    1 Piece Crank

Bottom Line:   
The Haro Shredder Is A Great Bike Cause Of It's Frame And Front End. It's Durable And I Highly Suggest It To Anyone Looking For A Starter Bike. Best Bike I've Ever Used For Dirt Jumping. But If Ur Looking For An Just Reguler Everyday Bike This May Be A Little High In Ur Price Range.

Strengths:    EVERYTHING!!!!

Weaknesses:    NONE

Bottom Line:   
My bike is for sale! Bike is like new. Some minor scratches and dents, but in excellent condition. Including the bike itself, there is about $700 dollars in it. If any one is interested, I am willing to let it go for $400. Not by any means am I excited for attempting to sell, but i need the money. Will be one eBay soon, but if pictures are wanted now email me at: curveball9109@aol.com

Strengths:    the frame is really strong and not too heavy, at least when you customize it. great for dirt jumping.

Weaknesses:    the tire rims weaken easily, seat rips, and the break system is weak.

Bottom Line:   
overall, the haro shredder frame its self is great. take off most of the parts that originally came with it and replace them with better ones and you will have a really great bike. its really heavy if you put pegs on it so that's why i don't have any...and cuz i don't need them to dirt jump. i am giving the value rating a 3 cuz the parts other than the frame could be better and lighter so yea go customize it and have fun. get the hoffman love handles they are really light and super strong and they feel great. the haro shredder is a nice bike for dirt jumping as well as street. i would recommend this bike so get off your lazy ass and go buy one.

Duration Product Used:   More than 3 years

Bike Setup:   my current bike setup is haro shredder frame, fork, seat post, and rims, gt jamie bestwick crank and pedals, hoffman love handles, johnson stem, dirt tires, really comfortable mtb handlebar grips, and a launchpad seat. i also took the front break off cuz i don't really need it. i think that's it. eh whatever.

Date Reviewed: March 15, 2005

Strengths:    Its a strong frame

Weaknesses:    Its weaknesses are the parts that come with it and the weight of it. This is the kind of bike you buy to replace everything on it...The bars are Kneesaver 2K I upgraded to S&M Smal bars, the fork was a Haro Megafork i upgraded to S&M pitchfork, the chainwheel was 44t fusion i upgraded to mosh, the back wheel i upgraded to Odyssey Hazard Pro cassette hub with Odyssey hazard lite rims, the crank i upgraded from the very heavy Haro HFC (haro forged crank...or heavy f*****g crank) to primo powerbite, the front wheel i upgraded to a mosh sealed hub then i was gettin mad b/c the frame weighed 1000 pounds so i upgraded my frame to a volume compton

Bottom Line:   
Overall the bike is better when all the stock parts are off of it

Submitted by mitchell bolton a Weekend Warrior from cedar falls iowa usa

Date Reviewed: May 21, 2004

Strengths:    I found out that the only strenghts the wheel sets even know they are single wall and the frame.

Weaknesses:    The weaknesses that i found are that the brakes suck and that most of the parts that haro put on there suck also. I broke the welds on the four piece bars that could have gotten me killed and the cranks are overweight an ussless and the seat ripped like paper. And the forks bend easy.

Bottom Line:   
If they actually took time and put some seald cranks on it and made some of the pats better it would be a great bike. basically the newer the better it is.
