Strengths:    Put the bike through tough love for the years i owned it

Weaknesses:    tires didn't last long and the brake levers brake fast for kids use

Bottom Line:   
I love Haro and the bike did everything i needed as a teen growing up without a car. won all the races i did and out coasted the 20" bikes. i would still ride it if some low life hadn't made it a parts store and left me with just the frame

Strengths:    rock solid bike, grippy tyres, nice crank and handlebars.

Weaknesses:    brakes don't work very well, crashed into a massive gate, forks suck, and the seat is a bit dodgy.

Bottom Line:   
it's a good bike for the summertime, insanely cheap, i just hate the forks though. i'm not going to buy more expensive forks, because the jumps i do are quite small but they jar my wrists. overall, an amazing bike for the price and i just love riding it.

Strengths:    Very well biult and solid. Glides over jumps.Ideal for rideing long distances. Wheelies 4 ever once you get it up.

Weaknesses:    Stock tires arent as grippy as they should be. bigger profile will put you behind 20" when racing down long steep hills.

Bottom Line:   
This bike is the awnser to someone that needs the utility of a mountain bike with the fun of a bmx

Date Reviewed: August 22, 2007

Strengths:    Rock solid....it's a Haro. Well thought out frame tubing and welds. 24" wheels carry great momentum anywhere. Feels better in the air than a 20".

Weaknesses:    Front fork and rims are not the best for dirt jumping. Even after upgrading them, it's still a cheap ride.

Bottom Line:   
BUY IT. A great platform to build on if you're on a budget. Great for urban, dirt jumping, or trails. The bike stock will last you a long time if you are an average rider. Haro will have my future business.

Strengths:    EVERYTHING it is a rock solid bike!

Weaknesses:    It is easy to under estimate the size of the bike when you are ridding it, and you end of casing jumps!

Bottom Line:   
It is a rock solid bike that is hard to damage. The only thing that has been damaged on it (by my very heavy use) is the back rim, and that’s only because I cased a cement half pipe.

The gyro is great and I haven't had any problems with it.
Oh wait, I forgot I snapped the break leaver when I was moving the bike. The break leaver isn't week but won't stand up against being hit repeatedly (from falling).

The only modification I had to do to this amazing bike was replace the tubes with thick tubes that have slime in them. (All the good dirt jumps are infested with sticker, broken glass, and other stuff that puts holes in tubes)

Date Reviewed: December 18, 2004

Strengths:    Feels like a 20 inch BMX bike, but for an adult. Stiff frame that takes jumps and hits pretty well. The price is unbeatable. My wife is 5'1 so it fits her perfect, great excuse to get a bike to ride around the neighborhood and local park.

Weaknesses:    The seat and the brake. My shoes are needed sometimes to stop me when I am at speed.

Bottom Line:   
I bought this bike to goof around on and it is great for that. It is fun to ride and reminds me of when I was a kid and rode a 20 inch. On days when I do not really feel like ridding I usualy pull this out and cruise around on it.

Submitted by wes tully from wpg

Date Reviewed: September 5, 2004

Strengths:    follow up from last review- after the 3 months the cranks are still straight, I expected them to last less than a month. still a rad bike. Rims will last with some tlc, like retensioning the lame factory job. 24", 36 spoke single wall rims aren't strong to begin with , especially if your used to 20" 48's so take care. frame is still in perfect shape but i only jump it, no grinds.

Weaknesses:    the forks lasted 2 weeks and I babied them. for the price of the bike it's expected, I ordered new forks the day after I bought it. The bars lasted a month and a half, longer than I expected. these are the only parts I've had problems with and I bought the bike expecting it.

Bottom Line:   
the only parts to bend were the bars and forks which cost $220 cdn to replace(170us)the bike was 370cdn(285us)new, that adds up to about the price of an S&M cruiser frame and fork, that's a crazy deal. If you land smooth or only ride trails with nice landings the forks and bars will last longer, I do a lot of landings to flat ground. I still can't believe the cranks are straight! this thing is awsome. great as a beater if you don't want to break your race cruiser or as a hardcore dirtjumper. it's a tank, don't race it. overall rating gains a point from last time.

Bike Setup:   changed the hubs, but only because I had some laying around the originals are alright. S&M pitchforks, S&M cruiser bars(gay bars)because the originals bent, also S&M seat,odyssey stem,primo pedals and redline 41 tooth sprocket not because these things broke, just 'cause i had these parts around.

Date Reviewed: June 14, 2004

Strengths:    Cheap!, Feels like a 20" BMX, 3 piece cranks, bars look strong, 990's and its a BMX!!! not a MTB converted to look like a BMX. A dirt jumper not a racer. A gyro on a cruiser!? Interesting!

Weaknesses:    The forks aren't the strongest, ok for smooth landings, started to twist after about 10 hard landings.

Bottom Line:   
For the price, 370CDN with tax, it is damn near disposable. Handles and jumps awsome. even with new forks it's still cheap. 3 piece cranks are cool for the price, loose bearings instead of sealed so maybe they didn't skimp on strength. Good as a second bike if you don't want to blow big bucks on a cruiser or as a beginner bike. Great for some one who just likes to ride and doesn't really care about fancy status symbol parts. If only lasts the summer you still get your money's worth.
