I rode Haros, GTs, Redlines and Even had a Robinson....this is a tough bike with 3/4 axels. I have thrashed this bike trails, roads and leaped from stumps and midwaist washes. I love this bike.. I gave this bike to my sons and they ride it around gently. Lol

Weakness:

The crank start to make noise after the 2 year of ownership. But at my weight 240, I expect that. Nothing has broken yet after 16 yrs

Strength:

It really holds up. It's taken just about 8 years of abuse and it keeps on going. Feels like it's built well. Seems to be a medium weight bike, which is a better thing now that I'm older. Good bike on dirt of street.

Weakness:

As many others have said, the crank has issues. It's also very low to the ground, probably worth replacing if you ride a lot of street.

I got this bike when it first came out and have rode it every time I get the chance since then. It's been a wonderful bike and it takes a ton of abuse. Had to redo the barrings in the crank just recently, as they were pretty shot from all the dirt riding over the years. If you're younger/lighter weight this may not be the bike for you and may seem heavy. I'm 160 pounds and find it to be a pretty perfect weight. Overall it really feels like it just wants to be rode.

Strength:

Frame & Forks are verry strong and designed for a larger rider as well as a medium one, I have the nyquist sig. bars and there verry solid but flexable enought not to jar ya when you land , the wheels that come on this bike are great!!! alex tripple wall's . The geometry of the bike is excelent for a rider of 5'10 5'11 , I myself weigh in at 265 lb's and feel confedent on this frame & fork !!

Weakness:

The Cranks (fusion) 3pc were popping after about 3 wks , the weight of the bike , it weighs atound 7 lbs frame alone , not too bad, butth e complete bike in a whole is realy heavy!! and the seat practicaly decentergrated in a matter of wks, just not to tuff!

If your an older rider or of a larger size this bike may suit you fine and will hold up under preasure , but might take some gettn used to!!

Strength:

the forsk ride nice and can take a beating. The slim bars are lite and have a nice feel. frame is awsome and suits a heavy rider like me.

Weakness:

the crank bolts come off, cranks make noises, the seat rips way to fast, and the rims are durable but weight alot

its an awsome bike. it the best one ive used. the frame is heavy but not real heavy, if you buy a haro X4 get new rims cause they are heavy, and purchase new 3 piece cranks also. people that are heavier should try the bike cause it can support the wieght of a heavy rider, and aggressive riders cause this bike can take a beating. people who are lighter shouldnt ride because the bike might be to heavy for you. i love my haro ive put at least $300 into it its now worth the 5 times as much as i paid for it.

High duribility

Weakness:

weight

good bike for a random rider that has a lot of strength. A bit too heavy for distance or air jumping for me. I like the weight for wheelies and manuels. i tried it on my friends mongoose outer limit and flipped. overall, its a good bike, a little expensive, but it can take a lot of damage.

everything ive beaten the living hell out of this thing and it kept going the frame and fork are indestructable i put nyquist signerture bars n it but stock slim bars were great
once i came of a dropp and landed on a rock with the crank arm! i thought for sure it was trashed but it was fine remember this bike was desinghed so that nyquist himself couldnt break it

Weakness:

yeah the crank popped a little so what nothing a set of $20.00 sealed bearings didnt fix

great bike nearly indestructable only what you expect from haro
