Strengths:    In fricking destructible. I found this bike at a skatepark, and decided to bring it home. It was ridable even though it looked like it had been there for days, it had rained a lot also.

Weaknesses:    1 piece crank, upgraded to three piece later. Grips-Very hard- makes your hand blister after 2 miles of riding. (Adam Banton grips FTW) Gyro brakes ewww

Bottom Line:   
Kick ass bike. I had to overhaul it because of the aesthetic damage it took from its previous owner / elements. Really durable, but needs a little work, even if new.

Bike Setup:   I run the same ratio (42/16) that was on it. I changed the pedals to Welgo magnesiums. Running a redline flight 3 piece crankset. Same fusion stem, same handlebars. I hate gyro brakes, so I changed it to straight cable with extra slack for barspins. I cut off the gyro tabs and brake mounts on the fork for extra weight savings. Sanded, repainted the whole thing. Looks brand new. Chain exploded, so I had to change that, but it was a rusty old chain. After the overhaul, I got it down sub 25 pounds, which is great, because it used to be around 30. I weighed it at a friends house and I got it to be 24.6.

Strengths:    sprocket tooth ratio, somewhat lightweight, 360 handlebars, fast, pretty to look at, rugged, good bang for buck.

Weaknesses:    Plastic pedals, 1 piece crank,

Bottom Line:   
A good, rugged bike. (I figured this out when I rescued it from abandonment in a park, it was there for days and endured many torrential downpours, with minimal rust) After I found it, I cleaned it up and it was ready to go, with minimal work after many days of abuse. Since then, I have taken it off huge jumps, logged some serious mileage (about 75 miles in a months time.) on it, and busted out some street tricks with it. Overall, this bike is a great bike.

Date Reviewed: April 25, 2007

Strengths:    Very strong and durable

Weaknesses:    It's a great all around bike but if you're in it just for big air, you probably want lighter.

Bottom Line:   
If you're looking for something that will withstand hard impacts, this is a great bike. My last bike was a cheap Wal-Mart 'NEXT' which I got to ride for about three months until I crashed and completely bent the frame, rims and handle bars... Also my elbow. Anyway, I've crashed this bike too many times and the thing still looks bran-new. Since my last bike was so cheap, it's hard to give a great comparison, but this bike just feels so smooth. I haven't been riding too long so I land hard and flat a lot but even then the ride is smooth. Also, I weigh 225 pounds.

Date Reviewed: September 23, 2004

Strengths:    The 3piece crank can take a bashing. The seat is tearproof. The 14mm axles wont bend. The bike is strong and a it's the best you can get for under $300.

Weaknesses:    The rims can break on you if you don't keep the tire pressure up.

Bottom Line:   
The bike is pretty good all around. I suggest new crome rims for extra stoping power, but for the price it is the best bike out there. This bike will hold up to the more advanced rider, but it's better if you dont weigh too much for it.

Submitted by james prashar from 08648

Date Reviewed: June 9, 2004

Strengths:    great bike for the money, strong crank, but can get weak at times... i reccomend a three piece. bike setup is great, and its very fast.

Weaknesses:    wheels and tires, if your tires arnt filled up to the right pressure and try to bunny hop a curve and dont make it.... whip out the cash cuz ur gonna have to get a new tube and get that dent out of your rim. Some parts for the haro f3 can also get expensive.

Bottom Line:   
some say its great for begginers, but i think that its good for experienced riders as well. handles great in the skate park, and lands firmly on the ground without any rattle. it gives u a confident feeling when you ride it. some bikes, if you go to fast, it will start to feel a bit.... flimsy. since the haro f3 has a strong steel frame, it flies down hills without a fear, but is also light enough for me to bunny hop three feet. overall, great bike for the value... plus it looks great, the yellow f3 is a hott ass color.

Strengths:    Great overall bike. It is not meant to be used on dirt but its still great on any BMX track. Best used at a skatepark or around the town. It has a great strong frame, light, excellent brakes and good tyres. I recommend the 3 piece crank over the 1 piece.

Weaknesses:    Well my pedals started making a noise the 2nd day I got it but it was simply an grease job so no complaints.

Bottom Line:   
Great bike for both beginners and intermediate freestyle riders. Great value for money and strong and reliable parts. If your sarching for a great BMX bike at a resonable price go for the Haro F3.
