Strength:

solid build, no nonsense turning and tracking

Weakness:

looking to upgrade rims and basics

i agree with the notion that there is no time to keep it low and slow resistance wins the war. This bike isnt winning any beauty pagents but can take acid drops and some serious twisting. no idea if this is even a decent bike by the experts standards but i turn into a primitive subspecies whilst riding it. i was almost caught riding naked the other night. Luckily the towel i tied around my neck as a cape, covered me jewels. by the light of the silvery moon, I endorse this product.

Strength:

great up hill and on flats brakes are good despite the fact that they are v breaks but you could easily add disk breaks thats what i did and very reliable

Weakness:

stock wheels are horrible and mud gets on it and then it is hard to get of

this bike is great for a beginner it can take a punishment time and time again it is very rugged and the frame is the best don't the one bad thing i can say is really bad rims i replaced them right away this bike is great i would recommend it to any one wanting to get into the sport i would recommend this bike to a friend

Strength:

The V-Brakes hold up awesome, even through the abuse i put on it. I use them a lot so i need something that i can depend on.

Weakness:

The rims are kinda weak, i have to get new ones ASAP because they are bent so bad that they rub up against the brakes and slow me down when pedaling. The derailleur can get offset pretty easy and i have to keep going back in to get them fixed

I think that this bike is great for the price. It has put up with so mush abues, i don't know where to start. I think that i may need a full suspension, though. A big, into-it mountain biker would not want to buy this bike. for a more of a recreational biker, this would be great

Strength:

Nice look, good strength, takes a pounding, light and versatile

Weakness:

Have not found any yet

I bought this bike for my girlfriend who has not ridden in a while. This bike was a perfect pick as it is good enough for me to ride, not like my Escape, but close enough. It was simple enough for her but had the capability to take a good hit or two. I was not dissapointed in my pick of a HARO bike.

Strength:

The v-brakes are excellent in a dryer climate. I adjusted all of the shifting components 6 months ago and haven't had a problem shifting since. The seat is comfortable for climbing. The bike is very nimble. Probably the best entry level bike for the money. This bike suprises me every time I ride.

Weakness:

The v-brakes in a wet climate. Here in WA you almost NEED discs! The fork could use some upgrading.

This is a great FIRST bike for any type of rider. I feel I have outgrown it only after the two years I've owned it (its definately time for a dual suspension freeride bike). It will definately turn you into a Haro fan!

Cross Country Rider

Strength:

Great Frame and the V-brakes are outstounding compared to a lot of the bikes ive riden, the frame has tabs for installing disk brakes at the front and back which is good in a new bike. shifts gears really smoothly and havnt had any trouble yet. Everything removes easily so easy transportaion

Weakness:

heavy tires that are great on the trail but takes a little getting used too on the street. Other then that i might be looking to upgrade on some bigger peddals and better suspension, but for now everything is running perfect!

This bike is paying for itself and i cant get off it. I was on many trails all week and the pushed the ran the bike into the ground and it held up. The shifters are killer and is a great overall bike. This bike is great for anyone with a little experiance in biking and ready for a step up in mountain biking, Look for HARO to make some of the best bikes in years to come.

Strength:

This bike has a swell frame which can last for pretty long. It also has an Ace design. I don't know about the components because I have changed everything to make it a pretty good downhill and Dirt Jumping bike. The Haro is also a pretty damn good bike for upgrading too.... I should know.

Weakness:

THE FORK IS HOLE!!!

It's a good bike for people who like cross- country at first, but I made it upgraded to fit my downhill and dirt jumping needs. The frame though can withstand some pretty fierce stuff. It's a pretty good design too. I would recomend this bike for someone who likes cross-country or someone who likes to upgrade
