    New question here. Haro Thread One. What new BB apropriate for?

    I ride Haro Thread One with it original complete.
    There are Truvativ Howitzer bottom bracket, and Truvativ Ruktion cranksets.
    During street and dirtjumping riding my BB was break.
    Now both cranksets may revolving independent.
    Please tell me what more strong BB may be apropriate for my bike?
    I don't want change cranksets. But if it's limiting BB selection, I ready to install new.
    Sorry for my bad English..

    The Howitzer is actually a really strong BB; many slopestyle/DJ guys use that BB because it's so strong, so I'm surprised you broke it.

    Unfortunately, your BB choices are limited with the Ruktion cranks because of their unique shape. If you do not want to replace your BB with another Howitzer, you might need to consider another crankset/BB option.

    Sure as long as it has a standard MTB-style BB.

    Thanks a lot for your answer, downhilljill, but I'm mistake in first message! Sorry!
    Servicemen tell me about splines on cranckset was tear down, but BB still usable..
    I have not noticed that join BB and cranckset has weakened and simply spoilt cranckset.
    I need to buy new crancksets.

    And I have question again...
    Is Haro Bikes company planned to complete Thread bikes line with another forks?
    I think standart Marzocchi Dirt Jumper 4 not a best choice..
    This fork without damping system return a vile beats when I twitch to bunny hop or wheelie or drop down.
    It's disturb little.
    I think to upgrade my fork.

    For 2008, we'll be using the Marzocchi Dirt Jumper 3 80mm fork.

    We designed the Thread series to be affordable, hence we don't use the higher-end forks on these bikes. We'd love to be able to offer the Thread series bikes with several different parts packages (including higher-end), but there is a limit to how many models we can comfortably manage. People (like yourself) will upgrade when and if they see fit to do so based on the demands their type of riding place on their equipment.
