I might buy a BMX bike soon. It's a Haro 540 Air BMX Freestyle Bicycle Dave Mirra. Does anyone own one here? Are they good bikes? I ride on the street, in the woods(sort of) and I want to start dirtjumping. I found some really big, well-kept, awesome jumps behind my old school.
Am I going down the right path? Is this bike any good? Thanx :)

I used to have one. Don't buy a Haro. They're heavy and overrated BMX bikes. You can get much more for your money with other brands. Riding a Mirra 540 Air WILL NOT MAKE YOU DAVE MIRRA. Keep that in mind.

Haros are kinda heavy. My friend has two, I've ridden 'em both, and they're a piece of sh** to take on the trails. They're rather old, so some things may have changed, such as the piece of sh** brakes. They're fine to take to some place around town to mess around in, but awful to go very far in or over any serious bumps. This particular BMX by Haro is discountinued I think.

And whatever you do, DON'T BUY THE FUSE 16. I WILL HUNT YOU DOWN, NO MATTER WHERE YOU LIVE, SLAP THE BEJESUS OUT OF YOU, THEN STEAL YOUR BIKE AND BURN IT.
After all, I am dirtyharry.


The Fuse 16 is appropriately sized for a small monkey.

What? That bike is tiny. It's roughly two feet from the front edge of the front wheel to the back edge of the back wheel. As for meth, I would sooner take meth than you would eat a live porcipine, nuclear waste, and Richard Nixon.
