    what happened to HARO VLS Sonix ? discountinued & why?

    I haven't ridden much in several years.
    But wanting to get back into it.
    I' have a Haro Sonix from 07 or 08. Monitou Black up front.
    I really like it. Don't plan on replacing the bike - but it seems to be discontinued around '10 or 11 ??
    Anyone know what happened to this VLS suspension / SOnix in the HARO product Line? Was it flawed design or something ? I think it won MTB XC bike of the year around 08.
    I know there was talk of frame failures but they warrantied them.
    Never a problem with mine.

    Info much appreciated.

    I Mostly ride cross county and technical single track with some jumps. In Texas so no monster downhills for me. I also have a Kona Hard tail - but the older my back gets the more i like riding the Full susp of the Haro Sonix.
    Thanks!

    I'm still riding my 2010 Sonix 650b. Best riding bike I've owned so far.
    Haro ran into financial trouble and had to downsize there line up severely.
    This meant dropping full suspension all together.
    Nothing wrong with the design. I like to climb as well as descend and find it works well for me.
