Got a sweet deal on one of these a month or so ago. Solid, well finished, well spec'ed bike, lots of fun on the trails here in MA. Stock tires sucked; swapped out to 3" Spec Purgatory Controls f+r and that made a huge difference. Other than that, I'm very impressed with the overall quality and value. I'm definitely riding well on it, picked up a good bit of overall speed compared to the 26" 1x8 or 9 steel hardtails or 6" trail-ish bikes I've been mainly riding for awhile. Bit of a pig on long grinds, but whatever, it's got a much lower gear than I've had in years.

Any pics? I had such a hard time testing a Haro. It was up on my list because of budget but it all had to be pre-ordered and no chance to test one out, so I ended it up w/the SC - which I'm happy about but these bikes look like a great value. I jump in here from time to time to see if anyone has actually purchased one. They seem like a nice small company.

No pics yet. I'll get some.
Lots of nice details for the price point.
Really impressed with the finish - seems super durable so far. Nice hardware, solid component spec. I spent a lot of time on FSRs in the past, so I'm comfortable with how the suspension works (but having to re-learn to ride low-ass pedals without smashing stuff regularly). Very happy with it after 15 or so rides.

That's cool I wish they had a stronger presence (at least in SoCal) they used to be sold by Sport's Chalet here but they discontinued it and most LBS carried BMX Haro/Kid's bikes. Looking forward to checking pics other than their website.
