    Its not surprising, Haro's were overpriced to begin with. Its funny, their Masi division is generally considered full of good bargains and sells really well, even up here in canada, there are tons of Masi dealers (there are five or six LBS's dealing Masi in Ottawa alone). Haro's mountain bikes and commuter bikes on the other hand... not well at all. And its pretty much got everything to do with the pricing of the mtb/hybrid models.

    Sorry to hear about the layoffs, it's not a good time to be unemployed. Best of luck to you Jill! I was sorry to see the X6 and X7 disappear suddenly from the US market too. I'm confused about the direction Haro is heading and not offering anything for the AM market, for the US anymore.

    Allan Cooke is a bmx guy so I would say Haro is going to mainly focus on bmx again. It kind of sucks because any serious bmx person will build from the frame up not buy complete bikes like a Haro. Oh well what can you do it does suck though and Jill was awesome

    Haro offers frames and parts to build bikes from the ground up for the "serious" BMX person. It also offers some of the best out of the box complete bikes that can be ridden by that same "serious" BMX person to fit their budget.

    Frame size options was unheard of on a complete bike when I was younger and not at the build a complete bike stage which left me riding a bike far to small for me.

    Yeah they do offer parts for Haro and Premium products I know my LBS carries them. They aren't really what you see in alot of skateparks, street riding, or anything. Alot of companies have offered different frame sizes for years. Haro is kind of like GT they lost their way in serious bmx years ago. Most riders now ride stuff from rider owned companies like Macneil etc

    What company offered BMX frame sizes on complete bikes within a certain product range? I think you may be looking in all the wrong places, I still ride BMX and see Haro and Premium all over (even when traveling) at skateparks, trails, and riding street.
