Strength:

Obviously bought as a frame and shock... Thsi Frame is beautifully engineered and thought out. Beefy rear triangle and large downtube make for a solid ride. Sloping top tube makes the frame feel small and controlable... I built this bike up for freeride and light duty downhilling. A perfect machine at half the costs of the others.

Weakness:

factory RST22 shock.. no enough stroke and really heavy lb. spring.

Beautifully excuted and tired and trued. This thing really takes abuse. This rig built holds up more solidly of 4' drops than the outwardly X2 and X1 Haros...-----------------------------

Strength:

the frame is bullit proof and relitivly light. the swing arm is nice and beefy if you don't mind the extra weigth. bearing pivots are nice and smooth.

Weakness:

the stock fork was crap.the drive train is fine if you ride x-country but for free riding you'll want a derailler with a stronger spring and i put a bullet brothers tensioner on because the derailler hanger/dropout broke twice, the tensioner stoped that. the wheel sets work but are not as sturdy as i would like, they will be changed as soon as i have enough money for disc brakes.

this is a sweet frame which you can upgrade forever. it works stock but if your up to 4'+ drops and bmx style jumps you will want to add the tensioner because the chain slap will rip the derailler off the hanger. also if your into freeriding upgrade to disc brakes. for the price you will be hard pressed to find a frame up the same amout of abuse this bike can handle. this bike is aimed toward the people who want to freeride but don't have much cash.

Strength:

Frame takes a pounding, I weigh close to 200 lbs and try my damdest to his most bumps. just started riding again so, it's catching some abuse. If you are just starting out this bike won't let you down and you can still pick some up at least around here for an even better price than i paid.

Weakness:

Fork turns mushy, rear tire exploded not even on a trail. Component group could be upgraded.

Love this bike in particular the frame, although a bit heavy it's bullet proof. Have given it pretty regular beatings and it responds well. Not many more upgrades planned for the near future, but plan on building on this frame for quite some time.

Strength:

Well this is a first installment in the continuing saga of the Haro X0 Freeride frame. I'm builiding this one up for specific 3' and up drop offs and steep DH style descents. The frame iteself has a beautiful fit and finish.. Albeit the rear RST 22 rear shock. This will make a serious competitor...

Weakness:

As a frame the only thing is the RST 22 rear shock providing 3 1/2 travel.. Not very freeride....

***When this bike is finished for the long haul I will further update you on her trail worthineess.. First Freeride bowl ride in 3 weeks at Allaire State Park, south NJ... Keep posted...

Strength:

Wow, what a frame!! Good looking and strong! One of the best frames I've ever rode. Great looking! One of the best designs this year! It combinates functionality and design.
The Parts are cheap in pricing, but absolutly great in this combination.
The RST Back Fork does a really great job...

Weakness:

Nothing yet, instead of the Front Fork. The RST Mozo ML30 ist a bit weak. It makes a good job, no question, but after 2months it feels a bit "spongy"...

It's one of the best bikes I ever rode. The back-fork makes a great job. It strong/hard enough for hard uphills and absolutly great for rough and fast downhills!!
The frame is IMHO the best looking frame this year and faboulous for extrem upradings.
The only (not really) weak part is the front fork. In my opinion it's a bit weak and the arms feels like pudding after 4hours of riding.
After all it's a great bike for everyone who wants to ride on every trail outside he can ride.

Strength:

The bike has strong parts and is a good freeriding bike. The handle bar and seat and seat post are good also. The tires are ok for that price.

Weakness:

The bike has horrible suspension. The Front fender is cheap and is easy to break and loosen up.

The bike has strong durable parts that can survive freeriding. The Frame and front suspension are heavy. The components are not exactly brand name. I think the parts are good for the most part for the money you pay. If you need good components, full suspension, and want a haro for cheap money, get this bike.

Strength:

Well this is the 2nd suppliment as noted after riding this bike from a Downhill to a it's current form. I've re engineered this bike from a Downhill to a Urban Dirt jumping/freerider. This bike is really solid and if you can find one I'd recommend it. It's one of the nicer single pivots and really cheap.

Weakness:

tAgain I ordered this frame as a frame and shock. the weakness is indeed the RST22 rear shock. I used it as a paperweight but the other main thing is the shock to swingarm flex due to the plastic bushings that mount the shock. If you can find some aluminum ones definately upgrade them!!!

If you are looking for something versatile this is worth a look. Frame for frame the cost per dollar is nice factor. Very tight with my current setup and I love to ride this everywhere and jump everything. I need to replace those stinky plastic shock spacers with metal ones. then I'll ride that off some serious drops again.

Strength:

the frame is super strong,value for money,easy to make into full on free rider

Weakness:

the rear pivot on these bike are rubbish,cracked my first front triangle after 1 year as soon as my new one arrived I had gussets welded on to the rear pivot and made a solid axel for the rear swing arm.
doing the above took any flex out of the bike

this bike is a cheap f/s bike to get started,as you break things upgrade,
I now get 7" in the front and 6.5" in the rear
