2013 Haro Flightline Sport

Got her today. I cant find any reviews on this bike anywhere! So I guess I'll have to do it. Got off work and rode all day, super smooth shifting and hydraulic disc brakes for $575 brand new. MSRP $629.99

Gonna change the pedals first. Not to crazy about the graphics/logos. Thinking about plastidipping it.

I mean compression tunes

RS Monarch f.e. has 3 tuning options — low, mid and high. What suits Shift frame most?
I think you should look for a progressive shock, i.e. one with a small volume. I put a Rock Shox MC3.3 into my Haro X1 and I'm very happy with it - works smoothly without bottoming out. Afriend of mine is using the same in his Haro Shift and he's ok with it as well. Also, a Swinger Air (or Coil) will be fine.

A propos my velo ;) My X1 changed a bit since 2011 when I bought the frame. The one thing that didn't change (except the frame) are the forks. Specification below:

Frame: Haro Extreme X1, 5”/6” travel, size: S (16”), 2004
Rear shocks: Rock Shox MC 3.3 190x50mm
Forks: Marzocchi Z1 Light ETA, 2006, 150mm
Fender: Marzocchi
Headset: Amoeba Hussar
Spacers: some carbon stuff

Cranks: Shimano Hone 20/32, 175mm, + Accent Hollowtech II bearings
Bash: Shaman Racing
Suport: Przerzutka tył: Sram X.5
Front der.: Sram X-5
Chain: Sram PC-971
Casette: Sram X.7
Pedals: HT AN18SS
Shifters: Sram X.5 (front) / X.9 (rear)

Front wheel: Unknown (27mm inner width) + A2Z DHFF hub
Rear wheel: Alexrims FR30 + Novatec D024SB hub + DT Swiss RWD
Front tire: WTB Weirwolf 2,3 comp
Rear tire: WTB Prowler 2,3 comp
Tubes: whatever, ca. 200g/piece

Brakes: Formula Oro K18
Rotor F: Hayes 203mm
Rotor R: Avid 185mm

Bars: Cloud Wings of Pray, 750mm
Stem: Bontrager Earl 50mm
Seat: BBB BSD-08
Seatpost: Gravity Dropper Classic
Grips: Lizard Skins Moab

I want to change rotors, stem, maybe the bars. Oh, and the rear hub for sth lighter. And the front rim for Alexrims FR30 as well - they rock! :D

I am new to MTB and purchased this bike last month. I have rode about 100 miles both on concrete and dirt trails. I love it!:thumbsup:
I am also new to MTB and purchased a 29" Flightline Trail two months ago. One of my pedals busted with about 75 miles on it so that was the first thing I upgraded. Aside from the Forté platforms, the stock components have been enough for me so far. Loving this bike.

Haro Werks XLS 1.0

Looks like I'm a bit late to the party :)

Here's my 12 year old Haro. Wouldn't trade it for any other bike!!!

This is an older pic. I have since upgraded both suspensions to FOX and other smaller stuff. This is a 2001 bike and still going strong!!!

Hi there any diff between the X1,X6 & X7?? They look kinda similar..
I'm not a big Haro expert, but from the Haros I owned the difference is in the composition. The higher the model - the better the components it uses. Other then that it's similar in its frame and geometry.
