    Haro Shift Frame

    Hi there,

    This forum is a great source of info, and thanks to everyone involved.
    Just started riding after getting a steal price on a shift r1 2011. Guessing because they have been discontinued. Bought it through Yahoo Japan new for 38000 (about $400 US)
    Seems do be doing the trick as an intro to the sport.

    I have been searching these forums about information on the frames and the differences between the Shift series, (R1, R3, R5) and was hoping someone could confirm the differences between the models.
    I am under the assumptions that the frames are the same, just the components are different.
    Is this a true statement, or have I bought a bike which is a lemon, and isn't worth upgrading as I develop.

    Thanks for any info much appreciated.

    Hi Superj,
    I have a 2008 shift R3, and to the best of my knowledge, the frame design should be about the same. the big differences are the components. For example, you have a coil rear shock, and mine has the rockshox bar air shock. I really like the single pivot frame design on my R3, and plan on upgrading as i go. the drivetrain would be worth upgrading, in my opinion. The rest is up to your riding style and preferences. Good luck to you and your shift R1! I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

    Thanks Rooney
    Took it out on a couple of single trails yesterday. The bike is feeling good!
    Have replaced the Stem and it feels tight.
    Next I think will be brakes.
    I appreciate your help.
