Strengths:    pretty much everthing

Weaknesses:    the spokes loosened up real quick and the bottom bracket bearings went in 2 weeks

Bottom Line:   
the rims are good for being such a low profile double wall but the bottom bracket bearings arnt good i love the bike its just right for me i ride street park and dirt plus me and my friends just race each other for fun and i win but im gonna put my spiked tires on it and ride the lakes but this bike is absoulty worth it i think it was under priced though they shouldve made it $450.00

Date Reviewed: October 19, 2004

Strengths:    pretty light frame smooth ride good for tricks and it's fast. Ok for one thing it's a Haro so it has to be good. i took it to the X-games indoor pro track and it rode pretty good there.

Weaknesses:    When i was at the X-games indoor park the 3 piece broke the stem and handlebars stripped and i bent a rim witch makes you think if Haro is a good brand anymore but then again maybe i just rode it too hard. And i read the other reviews and two other guys said that their 3-piece broke too hmmm...makes u think if Haro makes good parts anymore? we'll up till when everything broke it was a good but not great bike. I would suggest it to pro's only. it's a bit too heavy and long for kids who r just starting. but over all if u r really serious about riding and ride street it's a good buy for the money.

Bottom Line:   
buy it if ur serious about riding not a begginer u woulden't be able to handle it.

Submitted by sam nune of ur business a Weekend Warrior from Jerseyville IL United States

Date Reviewed: October 16, 2004

Strengths:    Light frame strong forks good for jumps and dropoffs. Alright brakes good grinding pegs and a good sprocket not too big and not too small. And awesome catapult dirt tires but not as good as dirt monsters. O and 14MM axels.

Weaknesses:    The 3 piece on it broke on me the second day and in sombody elses review they said the same thing happened to them. The bars are too big. Small pedals should be bigger with more grip. Kinda crappy grips give's ya calluses real bad if u don't wear gloves.

Bottom Line:   
If your lookin for a light good street bike and a solid dirt bike as we'll it's ur best choice.
