    Question for Haro Mary Riders (xpost from 29ers Thread)

    Hi everyone!

    I've been reading the various threads on the Haro Mary and I've been wondering:

    1) How tall are you? Inseam?
    2) What size do you ride?
    3) What length stem do you use, assuming you've swapped out the stock stem?
    4) Has anyone cracked their seat tube?

    I'm asking cause I've read various opinions on various posts, but I figured it would be easier to discuss in one consolidated post.

    Thanks everyone!

    ... and if we just ...

    1. 6 feet, 33" inseam.

    2. 18" medium. I slam the seat all the way back. I could also probably ride a large.

    3. Stock stem and Mary bars.

    4. Not me.

    5. Bonus answer. Great bike.

    You're welcome!

    1) 5'8" / 30" inseem

    2) 16" small / also have the seat all the way back (just like it). I could not decide between riding the 16 and the 18 when I was at my LBS test riding - but, I had next to no room standover on the 18 so I went smaller - glad I did. (but on a 26" wheel I ride an 18" frame)

    3) Stock stem and LOVE the Mary bars - especially on hills.

    4) Not a single problem with this bike.

    I've added CSI Chunky grips, White Brother's Fork (stock was fine but this is lighter and a tad softer), CB Smarty pedals, Continental Race King tires (I've started racing it - one race - but off season I'll go back to the Navegals), and full-travel Thudbuster (best purchase - after the bike itself - I've ever made).

    Good luck.

    Yknow, even I forgot to share

    1) 5'11", 32" inseam
    2) 16"
    3) Swapped out to a 100mm zero rise, over the stock 90mm
    4) Nope (its about a week and a few days old though

    BONUS: Apparently, the cracks on seat tubes and head tubes aren't too common, and only in the first production run (it's been corrected since then, I'm told).

    Have some experience in manufacturing, so I know that these things happen, and the more frames/bikes get sold, the higher the likelihood of it happening given a larger population. That's why it's really important to buy the manufacturer, very important that they stand by it.

    As soon as I got the frame, I gave it two coats of framesaver (yup, even the gusset under the down tube - head tube junction) and now I'll just ride it hard knowing that if it breaks, it's all good...

    first 29er, pretty impressed so far...
