    Tolland Bicycle-Tolland, Connecticut, United States, North America, Western Hemisphere, Earth, Milky Way, Universe. If you ever are in the area, stop in and say hi. I'll be the unpaid child laborer in the back who doesn't talk and works on bikes for free food and discounts.

    They deal Haro, Giant, Jamis, and Ellsworth (yes, Ellsworth), and some road brands like Pinarello...

    Dave, along with other seasonal employees, and a few interns like me) are no-nonsense, straight to the point, and are just good people. (excluding me)

    This is an awesome thread! One of the thing our MTB line struggles with is we're known as the "BMX company", so far more of our shops carry our BMX line than our Haro line. I'd really like to hear what good shops in your area stock Haro MTB.

    Something to keep in mind if you are looking for a Haro is don't be shy about asking a shop that only stocks our BMX bikes if they'd be willing to order a MTB for you. Most will be happy to do so.

    In Prescott Arizona...they stock some Haro mostly the Flightline series but they will order in anything you need. They have been great to me so far. They also carry Trek and Cdale plus a few more I cant remember.

    IMO if Haro had E Porter and C Zink ride each bike from the DJ to X-6/7 to the W-7 and had short clips to go with each bikes page that would IMO (who am I? ) Show what could be done or maybe even more important what's done on them.

    We just might do that. We're in the process of getting the new website together.

    My favorite Haro dealer shop where I have purchased 3 bikes already is Valley Cycle Shop 139 East Route 59 in Spring Valley, New York, (845) 356-3179. Rich runs it, and if he tolerates me, it has to be a good shop. 2 years of free maintenance on any new bike you buy, best prices on bikes anywhere and excellent wrenches in back.
    His brother runs the Bicycle Depot at 9 East Central Avenue in Pearl River, New York, (845) 735-8686. I've picked parts there before no complaints from me....

    AVOID this shop

    Theres a bike shop here in Eugene Or that sells Haro but needs to be avoided.

    Scott's Extreme Ride Shop...............
    This guy is a spinner of tall tales, when the shop opened (down the street from my house) I thought cool a shop really close. I go in there and meet the guy, find out he's from San Diego also, he's a So.Cal talker, being from N County my BS-radar goes to full protect mode.

    I will always remember his first words, "yeah I sold 3 X-6s last week" the reason he's stating he has none. Well all he had were Flightlines and Del Sols. I go back in within a mnth and his story changed to " Yeah I just got 3 X-6s ripped off " So even a few months go by and I go back end and he says, he just sold all his X-6 and X-7s he had in stock. You can see his shop from the street, I drive by it everyday, never seen one.

    We have a high end DJ/Park BMX shop a couple of blocks from the Extreme ride shop, the BMX shop fixes the other shops F-ups. Unfortunately the Ext shop is getting a bad name.

    Then my son on his 2006 X-7, we bought from Willamette Mountain Merch, goes for a ride with his buddy on his Kona Stinky. They pull up the the Extreme Ride shop and the guy meets them at the door. He grabs my sons bike and flips it over and takes the serial # off it. My son is 6-1" 210, his friend 6'2". The guys tells my son that he just got his "personal" X-7 ripped off. Well back up a few months and the guy tells me he rides a 2008 X-7 all tricked out So my son grabs his bike back and says F-U and takes off.

    I'd like to hear from Haro themselves how many X-6 and X-7 this shop has ever stocked. And why dosent' he have anything but Flightlines for a Extreme ride shop ????

    We have several Haro dealers here in Eugene up in my first post, when in Eugene go to them.

    Back to the subject of good Haro dealers, I'll have to put in a good word for my favorite shop. Hampton Trails Bikes in Hampton, TN. We've bought a couple bikes from him now as well as plenty of parts and clothing. Brian has always hooked us up with the best deals you can imagine. He also deals Litespeed, BMC, Santa Cruz, and Bianchi. If my memory is correct, he's also the #13 Haro dealer in the country, not bad for a small shop in a very small town.

    Where in the world is Hampton TN? My friend, Joe Brown has a little LBS in Cumberland Gap TN. He pretty much runs the Flightline series w/ a few Heartland bikes thrown in for the rails to trails folks. Harper's Schwin in Knoxville also has an extensive inventory of MTBs and Haro Road bikes

    Scott's supports our entire Haro line. He buys mostly Flightlines, Heartlands, and BMX bikes and sells a lot of them. Sorry Cascade, but I can't really comment about the specifics on the bikes he has ordered in the past.

    Hampton Trails Bike Shop and Brian White are awesome! That's one of our best shops in the nation.

    My favorite Haro shop is Downingtown http://www.downingtownbike.com/
    Ken and George are the type of LBS guys you want to support because they stock the HARO MTBs and will exceed your expectations every time. I have two HAROs from this shop and found them through other riders who had recommended them. I hope they can survive through this economy as they are a valuable resource.

    I love this shop. The people are very friendly, helpful and know what they're doing on mechanical stuff. They support the MMBA, local trail efforts and support local racers. I came thiiiis close to buying a Mary there in Spring 2007 but I ended up getting a Salsa El Mariachi from them instead and I love that bike to this day. I still think the Mary is a great bike though. I'd like to buy a Beasley 1 X 9 there this year if finances permit.
