Strengths:    Every singal peice of this bike is amazing. I am a pretty seriouis rider i would say, and besides my redline, this is the greatest bike i have ever ridden. It smooth and p[owerful with an excellent crank. Its a tad heavy but its very solid and that makes up for it.

Weaknesses:    NOTHING ITS UFCKING AMAZING

Bottom Line:   
Smoke weed during the week, ride bike on the weekends.. Dip when neccesary.

Strengths:    Pretty much everything, this bike comes with alot of good stuff. Its a 2005 bike, and so far the only thing I needed replacing was a rim and tubes. Very very solid, but still very light. A very smooth ride. This bike comes with some cool hybrid tires too. ;)

Weaknesses:    The brakes weren't that good, but I honestly dont use them enough to justify spending money on new ones.

Bottom Line:   
I ride street pretty much every day, with pegs (not stock)this thing is awesome. I've used it for dirt, and it works for that too. This is a great bike for beginners and experts alike, and believe me, I know, with this one bike I went from one to the other. Stands up to everything you throw at it, hard slams, everything.

Date Reviewed: January 5, 2007

Strengths:    strong frame,thick,and sturdy
3pice cranks,perfect for jumping and good for street. I dont think this bike should be bought by people who will just let it sit and collect dust, this bike should be bought by people who will use it forever


Weaknesses:    a little heavy about 37-38 lbs,after being jumped for at least a month the crankes got loose,didnt like the fuzion seat or seat post so i got origional haro seat and seat post, also the sprokets are 39-13

Bottom Line:   
This bike is perfect for catching big air,or practesing tricks,learning how to become a true biker,I think this bike is for some one who can get mad air, I also think this bike can help out beginers who are just learning how to 180
because the haro backtrail x3 is a tank!! and when the biker gets a new bike it will be way easer to do tricks because the new bike probably will be lighter.Anyway I have been riding this bike for at least 6 months this is a good bmx bike!!!!

Strengths:    rock solid bike, stability is totally experiancable

Weaknesses:    my crank started making a click noise and feel that happens every time i pedal. But it works

Bottom Line:   
The x3 is a great bike no dought. even though i have only had it a few days. But I can tell from riding it that its a super solid dirt jumper built to withstand abuse, speed, and getting high like me. just go try it for yourself if you havnt riden it yet. bike shops let you ride whatever.
GREAT BIKE hopefully my crank is not busted. cuz that would make it suck

Submitted by Ryan Nyquist a Weekend Warrior from Santa Barbara, CA, USA

Date Reviewed: September 2, 2003

Strengths:    Tough frame, nice brakes, over all very tough, top of the line

Weaknesses:    handgrips wear out fast and bikes pretty heavey its weighs like 30 pounds. I once took a sharp turn and the bike landed on my ankle and the frame hit my ankle and broke it.

Bottom Line:   
Buy it!! One of the best bikes on the market. For serious riders who do tricks. Dont buy it if you r just going to ride it around. Use it what its ment for and that is going BIG.
