Date Reviewed: July 30, 2010

Strengths:    Cranks are indestructable

Weaknesses:    heavy, snapped near head tube after a year =( gyro cuts break power at least in half plus there is no cable stop for a straight cable

Bottom Line:   
Great bike for beginers but if you plan on doing larger drops and more intense tricks i would get a better haro frame, i decided to get a 2009 haro forum intro lite after snapping this one.

Date Reviewed: March 24, 2008

Strengths:    Frame is very strong and the cranks are pretty decent

Weaknesses:    The handlebars have way too much backsweep and are to low, the rims give out in a couple months, pedals not grippy, overall way toooo heavy

Bottom Line:   
Great bike to start or for a very casual rider. I love to ride but more into sking so only ride in the summer and fall. If you think you are going to become serious have money ready for a new fork, bars, and pedals at least. Rims will need to be replaced shortly also.

Strengths:    Sturdy as a Tank, Nice Tires, all of the parts are quality.

Weaknesses:    The Bars are really Low. This bike is HEAVY!! It is also very had to do a nice wheelie on it. You cannot acheive a bunny hop on this bike. Its so heavy and the large tires make it nearly impossible. not kidding there.

Bottom Line:   
nice bike as a 'riding' bike. not so good for jumps or stunts. it is nice and cheap!

Date Reviewed: December 11, 2006

Strengths:    The frame is good, 3 pc crank, decent tires, rides very smooth. Comfortable seating position, very nicly laid out.

Weaknesses:    The frame could be stonger, but see below for info.

Bottom Line:   
Here's my deal. My son is 8 years old and is getting good at BMX riding for an 8 year old. He is also in pe-wee motto-cross on his Yamaha TTR-90 dirt bike. In the past I always let him pick his bike out and he always picked these $80.00 to $120.00 bikes. Every year he broke the bike. 80% of the time it was wear and tear. Bearings fail, wheels bent, ect.. I finally picked out the Haro F2 bike for him. I was told the bike was way better then these Wal-Mart and Target bikes would ever be. So right now you are seeing that I am comparing this bike to crap from the past. I can't say how durable it really is because him being 8 years old, he can not break this bike. If it were me riding it, I would step up the plate a little and spend an extra $200 or more. However, at least if the crank or wheel bearing should fail or you want to upgrade something on the bike; at least it is a bike worth doing that to. I will never penny pinch on any bike for any of my kids. I could have saved a ton of money if I would have spent a little extra dough up front. Even though the bike is only 6 months old, it still performes like it was new. Unlike his last bikes. After 6 months, they were making noises and I knew it was done for.
