    Good job! Haro Ally XC 29er

    All i have to say is Helllllzzzz YES! This bike is awesome, im glad i opted to wait for it and the waiting definitely paid off! Its so smooth, handles perfectly to me, quite agile and whippy as you want it to be. I dont notice the weight at all, i can bunny hop like a mad man on the thing, and downhill its just a flat out beast along with climbing hills. There were a couple times where i thought i would make it but i clicked both gears down into 1st and started pedaling away and made it..I love this bike. For a first bike, and a 29er, i cant ask for anything more. It was everything i was looking for.

    Later on ill be posting some pictures. Ive literally rode 5 days a week( busy on weekends ) ever since ive had the bike, i love it to death. I learn the bike more and more everyday, i love it more every day. I absolutely leave everybody on the downhill and climbing parts...all of my buddies with 26's cannot even come close to competing with my 29' wheels on roots, rocks, anything having to do with climbing and i go right over terrorizing them.
    Although, the only downfall i seem to keep having is the chain keeps coming off, at least once every ride.

    Today i was going to a local trail and was climbing and started a downhill descent and went into 9th gear downhill and the chain and all tangled, thought i was going over the bars, luckily i didnt....However a piece of my Derailleur has a hairline crack in it( they said the part was the from keeping the Derailleur from breaking itself ), and the soonest theyd have it would be Friday...So unfortunately, no riding till friday which blows major ass. :: Sad Face ::

    Anytwinkle, im happy with my choice, bike is fast, fun, super agile now, whippy, and super capable to conquer ANYTHING in its path. I think ill be needing to upgrade to a 100mm+ fork soon( whoever said you cant jump 29's like 26's...youre way wrong haha ), the stock fork isnt liking some jumps that much and the abuse i give it lol. When i get on the bike, i mean business.

    Thank you Haro.

    Ahh, sorry lol. Yesterday at the time it had happened i was on the middle sprocket and shifting through all 9 gears trying to catch the slack up. Usually when i reach 9th and im in need for more "Oomph" ill switch to the large sprocket...

    Is this a no no by chance? Should i have been on the large sprocket when descending? Its my first bike so im eager to learn/still learning. If you have any suggestions or tips theyd be greatly appreciated lol!

    Thanks!

    Okie doke, here we go, a couple pictures from some rides. I keep forgetting to charge my battery after every ride so i end up taking it about every other time. Oh well! Here they are!

    OMG, you got one of the Ally's with the green forks on them!!! That color was a mistake made by our assembly factory. The fork itself is right and is awesome...but they were supposed to have grey forks on them. Do you like that color fork on that bike? If not, PM me. I have a solution for you.

    Hahahaha, I absolutely love it. Im a big fan of green, especially since its even more of a Lime Green color, i dig it even more( I have to admit, it was one of the things that drew me towards the bike ). I had to to buy another Camelbak Mule to match as well haha! I really, really, really wanted to get the Green/Black theme but supposedly they had none in the US and the soonest they would have it would be 3 weeks, color wasnt really an option for me...but im digging the white and lime green for sure! Im so happy with my decision. The only reason i stuck with Haro was when i was a kid there was a friend of mine that had a Haro BMX bike and beat the living crap out of it, i mean did everything to that bike and it took every inch of abuse. Knowing that was 15+ years ago, they couldve only gotten better. The Ally is a bomb ass bike! 29ers kill it!

    You definitely want to be in the big ring when descending. One the chain slaps around allot an two the big sprocket is exposed just waiting for you to make a mistake and slice your calf open.
