Strengths:    The whole f***ing thing except...

Weaknesses:    its really heavy. Its around 35 pounds.

Bottom Line:   
I would recommend this to anyone. If you wanna build up strength, use this lmao. If you buying one to cruise/chill, its got good lucks and a good seat. The newest[2010] model's seat i dont like but thats my opinion. If you do wanna do tricks and sh*t get this bike. i'd advise u to do manuals,wheelies,bhops,grind,and others like those. do not attempt any flips cuz it will f*** u up lol trust me. idk about the new models tire but the 04 haro f3 one is beast. iv rode over EVERYTHING. glass,nails,dirt,grass,etc it wont matter cuz the tire will beat them up. And that's all!

Strengths:    .Very durable frame
.stock grips are pretty sweet
.Colors are sick
.stock tires do well on all surfaces and are durable(dirt, pavement, concrete, snow, rode over glass, splintery wood, and landed hard on)


Weaknesses:    .Slightly heavy
.brake cable scrapes paint


Bottom Line:   
It's a great bike for intermidiate bikers and for all terain riding. If your looking for a long lasting bike that is very durable, you should go with the Haro F3.

If your looking for a light racing bike, you might want to go with a different bike.

Strengths:    THE FRAME IS EXCELLENT!

Weaknesses:    cranks came loose and were heavy and looked like cat food., stem slipped even when very very tight. headset bolt snapped.

Bottom Line:   
I have kept the frame beacuse it has been strong and excellent and it has been brilliant for the type of riding i give it.

Overall, i think it was worth making the bike even better beacase of the frame.

All the rest of the stuff was ok but in my opinion , i needed a change...to make it more freestyle.

People who want to buy a good starting bmx should get this beacuse it has all you really need to become a better rider...3Pc cranks...clamp-on stem...

but if you have or want to become an amazing freetyle bmxer then to suit nowadays, you need to buy some replacements for this great product.

Strengths:    Very heavy duty i have only changed tubes but im 6 ft 2 and 210 lbs so its expected. Great for beginner/ novice riders.The are made for the street but my also goes great in the dirt.

Weaknesses:    very heavy but u will get used to it

Bottom Line:   
The bike is great for all riders and is very dependable. Like i said B4 i got mine in 2002 but its an O3 an ive only changed tubes and one tire. Ive ridden a lot of different bikes some over $600 but i still stick with the old f3. Also it is a little heavy but its not that bad with the pegs off but I still rock the pegs on the right side because im just now starting to learn to grind. Very good bike for the preice i ride with people that have over 400 dollars into there bikes or they paid a lot more for them and im just as good if not betterwith a $230 bike if ur a beginner or u r already into bmx and u want a good dependable bike for a cheap price go with the F3

Strengths:    The handle bars are very strong and so is the frame it can take lots of abuse

Weaknesses:    rims buckled,petels are not very grippy,and the chains can be week at times

Bottom Line:   
the bike does have its weekness but once you up grade the petels ,rims,and brakes you will hawe a great strong bike if you dont mind upgrading alittle this is the bike for you.

Date Reviewed: May 4, 2006

Strengths:    It has a very strong frame which can handle even the biggest stacks. the 3 piece crank is nice and solid. The rims are quite good and it has very good brakes and bars.

Weaknesses:    I have had problems with my pedals but that is only because i didnt care for the pedals much. It is also a bit heavy so it is hard to wheelie but it is an excellent freestlye bike.

Bottom Line:   
An excellent freestlye bike that will last you ages. Its parts are very good and you wont be disappointed with the bike. Its best used for freestlye but is good at the dirt jumps too.
