    04 Haro X2 - Size small (I'm 5'-9") - Mostly stock.
    Changes (don't think theyre all shown in the pics):
    • Hayes Mags
    • Titec El Norte Beserker seat
    • Thomson layback seatpost
    • ODI Ruffian & clamps (cut bars down a bit too)
    • Crank Bro's 5050's

    Future:
    • Desperately need to upgrade the fork soon
    • Wheelset
    • Likely do something w/ the rear shock, either PUSH or change it.

    04 and 05 Werx

    05 Haro Werx 5 (size s), built from frame only. 04 Werx (size xs), now my wife's bike.
    The xs was a little small for me (I'm about 177cm), the s fits just perfectly. The 04 werx is a much lighter bike. My 05 is burlier, has xt 4 pots, heavier wheel set etc. I'm very happy with my Haros, trying to talk my friends into buying haro too.

    Haro Mary 29Ss here.

    Proto version, so the only 'stock' thing is the frame and the Reba.

    My '04 X1, I put Marzocchi AM1 forks, CB Eggbeater SL, Avid Juicy 5, and changed the seat, awesome bike, I ride mostly moderate to aggressive XC, it's probably a little heavy for it at 36 pounds, but I don't notice it.

    04 Extreme X2.
    The cranks, rear shock, front derailer (that is being replaced soon), seatpost, rims, stem, handlebars and grips are still stock. Everything else has been broken and replaced. The swingarm is off an 04 x1. I cracked the original swingarm.

    Fork is an 05 Marzocchi All Mountain SL.
    Shimano LX Brake levers with Shimano Saint Calipers.
    Shimano Saint rear hub and derailer.
    XT shifters and cassette.

    For as much as I have had to replace, this bike is still cheaper and just as capable as any of the boutique brands. It has survived a hell of alot of abuse. Mostly light freeride and very aggressive trail riding.

    Excellent bike Jill. So what do you know about the mystery VLS bike that appeared in MBA a few issues ago? It had a RS Pike fork and was very aggressive.

    That was a prototype of our Xeon VL160 bike that will be introduced with our 2007 line. It's a 6.5" travel version of the Sonix.

    Sweet Jesus! Jill.. thats a very nice Sonix you've got there!

    I kept it the 'standard' color. I liked the gold color on your proto that was used in the first MBA test report and was hoping that the production version would that color. Turned out impossible, but the painted color on the serial version now is very, very cool too. Not too flashy and not too raw.

    here pics of mine, probably the only one in Europe I guess??

    That Pink is HOT! Way better than gold. I heard pink was the new gold, or was it the new black.

    Why is your shock backwards? I guess it doesn't matter. It just didn't look quite right.

    when i got the coil upgraded to a heavier spring rate, the guy at the shop (who also assembled the bike) just thought it looked like it fit the frame better backwards.. i thought it looked funny too, that's why i asked him, but there's no difference in performance, so i never cared enough to switch it back... by now i'm used to it, and don't even notice until someone asks about it.. LOL

    My Raleigh is a Haro?

    P1000465.JPGAlready put this up on the Raleigh thread. Have a look at the rear swingarm - pivot point and drop outs. It has to come out the same factory. I second all the rave reviews of the Haro on MTBR. Great performing single pivot suspension.

    that looks like the pivot yoke and a couple other pieces that we used on our 2002 model year frames. We designed that back then. But we don't use the same frame factory anymore so who knows what they are doing with the forging parts that we created.

    2003 Haro Escape 8.3

    Bought the bike new. Couldn't stand the Psylo XC on it so replaced it with the Manitou Black Elite. The stem and bar are from a project that I was building up and realized they worked better on this bike.

    Your bike looks great.I love the single pivot style frames like that.
    I have a Fox Talas RLC & need to put it on a frame like that instead of my Trek 6700 hardtail..

    Here is my 2005 X1, not many upgrades other than a new seat, fork (not really new just took it off my old bike, 2002 Psylo), and pedals. Soon will be getting a DHX 5.0 (props to fox for coming out with one in a 7.875" eye to eye and 2" stroke), 2006 Rock Shox Pike 426, and a new wheelset which will either be Azonic Outlaws or TBC Revolutions. Sorry for no action pics.

    Just insert an image tag when you post the message and forgo the insert image altogether.

    I am realy not a computer klutz.. I build my own.. but I sometimes get hung-up on terms..
    What do you mean by "image-tag"

    I tried all of the three tags Webshots, pasted directly into the message and all I got was 'links'

    * Rear Shock: 2004 Manitou Swinger 4-way Air

    * Cranks: FSA something or other...2 rings/bash
    * Front Derailleur: Deore

    * Pedals: Crank Bro's 5050X
    * Stem: Thomson X4 - 70mm

    * Seatpost: Thomson Layback
    * Saddle: Stock or Titec El Norte

    Sorry for the lame basement pics...just put the new rear shock on & was excited, so I snapped a few pics. Love the bike so far. I plan to change the wheelset & fork soon...might repaint the frame too. Cant wait to get out & try the new rear shock! Also have some X.9 gear to go on whenever I stop riding it long enough to do it!

    (PS...I know I need to lose the FOX sticker...used to have a FOX shock on there. That sticker is a bugger to get off!)

    Here's a pic of my medium '04 X2. I did all the upgrades within a month of buying the bike, and ran it as pictured for about a year. I'm 6'1" and I found it a little cramped, so I bought a large Bullit frame with the intentions of swapping everything over.
    Of course, this didn't happen, and both are now sold. I've gone back to Super V's now

    Spec - from what I can remember...

    04 Frame
    04 JR T's -170mm
    Fox RX rear shock 200mm i2i giving IIRC about 6.5" of rear travel
    XT shifters/mechs
    Azonic 40mm stem
    Hope Mono M4's
    Triple trap pedals
    Spesh geometry seat
    Think rest was stock....just look at the pic to see!




    The travel seemed endless, and it soaked up anything that I threw at it - and I didn't have one slam on it! The back end always seemed a little loose sideways, even though everything was good and tight.......sold it on after I built back to standard for £200.00 less than I paid for it - that was lucky!

    Here's some pics of a Haro V5 1x9 that I just built up. I think the V5 is an overlooked frame by a lot of riders because the V series is on the lower end of the price spectrum. But the V5 has great geomerty and feels very stable across the board. I pieced this bike together with some decent ebay buys and some end of the year specials at the various online bike shops. The frame was actually a new bike stripped for parts and I got it for 45 bucks which is a good place to start

    here's the high points:

    X0 drivetrain w/race face cranks and a salsa ss ring
    manitou R7 super w/remote lockout
    avid bb7 brakes
    dtswiss 4.2 rims and dtswiss rear hub...specialized stout front hub (the stock wheels off a sj fsr carbon, I guess someone felt the need to upgrade the wheels on a 5,000 dollar bike)
    bontrager race stem and race face carbon riser bars / king headset
    fizik saddle
    panaracer fire xc tires

    I don't feel the need for a fs bike in Texas and this fits the bill perfectly. Light, stable, fast, and great climbing characteristics....

    My 06 Haro X7...
    Its all stock but with decent components......I guess. I only weigh 135 and at age 29 years old I don't think I'm ever going to change that. I've been told to change the fork but I've taken some serious nose dives and come right out of them with what I've already got. It will take a 7-10 ft drop and keep going. I like the stiffness in the rear suspension for going balls to the wall through rock gardens. I'd like to loose a little weight I suppose on the bike. All in all I'd say this bike is a perfect fit for what I love to do.....

    I'd love to hear some suggestions on what I may consider upgrading this summer though.

I've been told to change the fork but I've taken some serious nose dives and come right out of them with what I've already got. It will take a 7-10 ft drop and keep going. I like the stiffness in the rear suspension for going balls to the wall through rock gardens. I'd like to loose a little weight I suppose on the bike. All in all I'd say this bike is a perfect fit for what I love to do.....

    I'd love to hear some suggestions on what I may consider upgrading this summer though.
    I have the same X7. It is a great bike for the price. I wouldn't worry about the fork right off. It has served me fine so far and I have no complaints.

    The first thing I upgraded were the brakes. The Hayes Soles are not as consistent as I would have liked, so I replaced them with Hayes Mags.

    I also didn't like the odd 24/36 gearing on the crankset, so I replaced that with a Race Face Diabolous 22/32 and an MRP chainguide.

    I also am putting on a Fox DHX 5.0 coil shock to replace the barely adequate Manitou Metel. I ordered it today actually. Fox is back ordered on the 9.5x3.0's until next week, but I should have it a few days after that.

    I put on a 70mm Race Face Diabolous stem as well, but only because I wanted something a bit longer than the 50mm.

    You asked for opinions and those are mine. Good luck and let us know what you decide on--with pics
    I hope you have a big trunk... 'cuz I'm puttin' my bike in it.

    Except for the steel-steerer tube, which adds about 1/2lb the DOII's are pretty neat
    and I'll bet at 135lbs their a bit stiff..

    Suggest you remove the left spring... (13/16" spark plug wrench fits the caps".. and run 4-8 psi (the oil level, with both springs removed and the forks compressed is 60mm from the top to the 7.5wt oil)

    I weigh 170 and found them a bit stiff, never any air pre-load, they "top-out" and they would only "drop" about 1/2" when I sat on the bike.. Stiff and harsh over hi-speed stutter-bumps.

    get about 1-2" sag when you stand on he pedals...

    You will need a decent shock-pump to set the air in the forks..

    You will then find out the the "damping-adjustments" actually work and aren't just pretty little knobs..

    Also, spray silicon-lubricant on the stations before you ride.. reduces "stiction", the forks take a while to break-in

    Only complaint is the damper-adjustments don't have any "detent" so you have to count the turns.. start about 1-2 turns in at first..

    A "cable-tie" on one of the legs will let you know how much travel you use, but use a thin one, the forks go the the crown when fully compressed..

    You will now have some REAL Marzocchi "plush" forks that don't bottom..

    I run 888rc2x's on the font now... but the forks are on my Escape 8.3 Hardtail

    Trick is to play with the oil-level and air-pressure.. more-oil = less air less-oil=more air.. We are talking about 5mm in oil level, and 2-3psi changes..

    The higher the oil--level, the more it will resist bottoming

    Quick simple "oil-changes" can be done by taking off the front wheel,, bleed all the air, loosening the fork caps, take the spring(s) out, put the caps back in, turnin the bike upside down, finish unscrewing the caps..and pump the forks.. (into a pan) ..Refill with 7.5w GoldenSpectro (Motorcycle Shop)..poor some oil in, pump the forks a bit, add more oil... keeping the forks nearly completely compressed... when you get near the 60mm level, gently extend the fork legs and compress them a couple times to clear the air.. compress and verify 60mm... extend the forks, put the spring(s) in put the caps on, and add some air (20psi will make the forks rigid), only use 2-5psi... you might actually use Zero air...

    My Haro Extreme X6, 2006 model ;]
    WARNING. Screen stretch imminent ;[



    Ok so, here's what I'm running.
    Bought for 704$ on sale at LBS

    RockShox Boxxer Race 2004 model, set at 170mm Travel *Notice the nice HT angle
    Stock X-Fusion Shock, dialed in PURRRRFectly. I don't think I even need to upgrade it
    Stock basically everything else, cept the new ORAGE e.13 bashguard... I think I'm going to hook myself up with a chainguide soon.
    Getting complete fork rebuild soon too...
    Yeah, lovin' this bike. It rocks, and is almost as good as my friends custom '03 Wildcat Trail...

    Right, I also have those nice doorstoppers super glued to the bike, because the fork came with a tall race crown, so I needed stoppers :[

    Nice ride... very nice... who's the clown in the picture..??? LOL

    Suggestion, move the crown on top of the spacers... under the stem... it will move the clamp to the top of the fork tubes and make them stiffer.. it should also move the clamp over the top-tube...
    You probably won't need the stopper on the frame, and you can move the rubber on on the forks down to hit the downtube..

    At some point I will post my X7 with 888's set up that way.. Look at 357's that the way they are set up...

    If you want 7" of rear travel, find an X7 swing arm.. I think you use a 9.5" x3" shock, if not you will need one..

    Or keep it at 6"..

    Good job! My new WERX 7...

    I just picked it up, but I'm stoked about slapping her together. I've got an '02 Marz Monster T going up front, and a set of Double Tracks for shoes, but I'm still working on piecing the rest of it together. So far, this is how she looks:

    just picked it up today. Mostly stock, I traded out the shimano pedals for times, I'll probably replace the seat at some point in the near future, and may buy a set of easton carbon bars.

    Why, and how much did you get that for?
    Is it gonna be your first flickable freeride bike? I think you could set it up that way... or are you gonna start riding xc now jon?

    can't name exact dollar amounts, but sub 1k. Gives me something to do when I can't go to the jumps or ride downhill.

    Cool-blue Rhythm Here is how to fix your topcrown..

    Even if you don't have as much extra spacers, you will still get the crown up taller..away from the top-tube also, the rubber bumpers should hit the down-tube..

    Oh yea, as tall as the Pivot stem is, you can run the steerer down about 5mm inside for more height..or run a stem with less stack-height..

    Frame Size?
    Wheelset?

    I'm in the process of completing one myself w/ a Monster T up front, and I am still awaiting a wheelset. I bought a set of Spinergy Fall Lines off of Pinkbike, but it's a scam. Turns out the kid who listed them is a scam artist, and has been banned from damn near every bicycle/Honda car parts/computer forum for scamming. Bad luck on my part I guess).

    So I'm still looking for a bombproof, yet mildly inexpensive wheelset. I'm just trying to get ideas from what you're running.

    BTW: Sweet bike!

    I am running the stock Single Tracks with Pivot hubs.
    Mods I have done are:

    Fox DHX 5.0 Rear Coil Over
    Boxxer Ride Fron Fork. Adjustable from 133 to 178mm of travel w/lockout.
    Stans No tubes,
    Minion Tubeless 2.5 in the rear.
    Nokian Gozalladi Jr. 2.6 up front.

    The only other mod I will do is a XT rapid rise rear derailer and maybe an XT Dual Control hydrolic Front brake/shifter.

    I love this bike!!

    I Love it with 60lbs in the rear shock.

    Oh it a small 15.5.

    I just received my haro sonix werx 07 frame, it's in my office at work right now. I'll post a picture on friday, still waiting for the components to build it.
    It will be a reba team, and full sram X9 components.

    That's my first FS bike , and i can't wait to try it.
    Pics to come.

    Haven't seen a single haro mtb frame in France yet, hence i'll have an exotic bike !

    Above the rest!

    2004 XLS R7...
    the only original parts still on this bike are the headset, seatpost, seatpost clamp, and rear shock. I swap all the parts between it and my Spider frame depending on what I want to be riding for a while. The original slightly heavy parts are all collecting dust.
    This is a great worry free frame and I keep wanting to ride it, despite having an expensive "boutique" Spider frame. It's simple design, comfortable geometry, low maintenance, and fairly light weight make it a winner.
    Currently built with:
    2004 Medium XLS R7 frame
    Swinger 3-way shock
    Reba fork at 100mm (long steerer tube to fit my Spider)
    FSA K-Force 40mm riser bar
    Race Face 110mm stem
    Oury grips ("heavy", but very grippy)
    Juicy 7 brakes
    Stock Haro seatpost
    WTB Ti rail saddle (Rocket Team?) ~ 216g actual
    Race Face Dues or Shimano LX cranks (LX in pic, Race Face spline is starting to wear out from swapping on and off)
    Crank Bros Eggbeater SL's
    Shimano or SRAM chain depending on which one is clean
    Bontrager Race X Lite or Race Lite wheels (X Lites in pic)
    Shimano XT or SRAM cassette (XT on it now)
    Specialized S-works Roll X tubeless tires
    THE Shroud (awesome for mud!)

    You too? Damn, Escape fever.
    Mine is still all stock, I just got it few weeks ago. Just getting into riding after bmx-ing as a kid. I don't have much to compare to, but like the bike so far. Seems pretty well built, and has a lot of versatility IMO. Started riding on road just to get used to riding again, and matter-of-factly found a trail the other day, and dropped in on it, and actually got to "use" the bike, climbs well, suspension handled pretty rooty descents well too.

    I'm a newb, so take it for what it is, but I'm happy with the bike. Anyway, here it is

    the frame is real beefy. I think the best thing about the escape is its versatility. Urban, XC etc. its not the best for a certain thing I guess, but it does fairly good on a range of things. There are some badly paved roads that go dh a bit and there are small drops and I jumped them and the bike felt fine, the fork worked good. I would recommend getting clipless pedals though if your more into xc. Im just a beginner too, but I want to evenutally upgrade the hell outta the bike and make it into a crazy cool ride.

    First of all, Wow! All these bikes are so awesome, gives me inspiration to spend the little bit of money I have to upgrade my '03 Extreme X3. Unfortunately, I had to take it in to the shop after breaking the swingarm Tuesday. Hopefully Haro will be quick to warranty, and I'll be back on the trail, and post a pic. Btw, how do all of you keep your bikes so clean, they are like showpieces.

    work in progress

    As promised some pics of my new bike , can't wait to finish mounting it!

    the frame in my office with my friend's new frame and our bike parts.
    (yeah it's the IT department office, no wonder there are bikes in it we are allowed to have weird stuff all the time)




    and after a little mounting.



    it will be equiped with a reba team , avid juicy 7 , sram X9 group , XT cranckset, DT wheels for the moment and american classic in the next weeks, thomson stem and seatpost , stoneedge headset, slr saddle and i'm not sure if i'll use a monkey lite or a bearbone kcnc handlebar.

    Recently upgaded my '06 X7 with a Fox DHX 5.0 coil shock and a Marzocchi 66RC 170mm fork. I never realized how barely adequate that Manitou Metel rear shock was unti I got the DHX. I really can't think of anything to upgrade now. I suppose I could upgrade the wheels, but why should I when the Pivit wheels run well? I want to get a Gravity Dropper post but that can wait. I'm pretty happy with it now. Took it down Porcupine Rim last month and it was awesome!!

    Build is now:
    Fork: Marzocchi 66RC 170mm
    Shock: Fox DHX 5.0 coil
    Cranks: Race Face Diabolous 22/32/bash with MRP chainguide
    Stem: Race Face Diabolous
    Bars: Deity
    Seatpost: Stock Pivit
    Brakes: Hayes HFX Mags
    Shifters: stock SRAM X7's
    Rear der: SRAM X9
    Front der: Shimano XT
    Wheels: stock Pivits
    Tires: stock Kenda Nevegal 2.5's

    I hope you have a big trunk... 'cuz I'm puttin' my bike in it.

    It's an 18". You'll definitely love it. The frame is extremely beefy and will probably hold up to about anything you throw at it!

    I'm 6' 0". I do pretty much everything, but I haven't had the chance to take it out on any trails yet. I've only done some urban stuff so far...just small jumps and ledges so far and it feels pretty good doing those.

    For me, it isn't. Remember, though, that it's all in preference. I'm going to be doing everything...XC, AM, street. If I wasn't going to be doing XC, then I may have opted for a 16". But the 18" is a good all-around size for me.

    Yup. Bang for buck componentry with a good do it all hardtail. It has a better spec and frame comparred to all other completely built hardtails available here in the Philippines. Relaxed trailbike geometry and surprisingly light. Kudos to the guys at Haro. Thanks!

    Sweet! That's my favorite Escape in the line-up for no other reason than the color. The semi-gloss black frame with the black components just looks awesome! Enjoy!

    originally I thought the black was coolest, but I have grown to love my color. Whenever I pass my bike in the garage I just got to comment on its sexiness. BTW my bike's sexiness level is gonna increase big time because I'm upgrading the brakes to juicy 7's. WOOHOO

    New Haro owner in the house.

    Just picked up a Werx XCR off Ebay a couple weeks ago, and stripped down an old Ibis to complete it out.
    Just need some trigger shifters now, so I can ditch the gripshift, and move the brakes back in..........then maybe some Nevegals, and I'll be set. Running it as a 1x9, too.


    Right now.....
    Manitou R7 Platinum
    King headset
    Thomson stem
    Easton Monkey Lite carbon riser
    Ergon grips
    XTR rear der.
    XT cassette
    XT cranks
    Hope Mono-mini brakes
    SRAM Attack shifter
    Mavic Crossrides w/ IRC Mythos fr&rear
    Easton seatpost
    Selle Italia Flite ti seat
    Time ATAC pedals

    I picked up this today. I'm not gonna be doing any dirtjumping, though. It's just that I feel I'm a coward on the trail, and thought maybe this could help me build some guts.

    We'll see.

    haro x2 2005



    here is my 2005 x2. xc tires mode...

    Now it has Fsa shorter stem and a shiftguide.

    for fr i keep the kenda´s bluegroove and nevegal, or maxxis highrollers.
    for xc i have rodi wheels (portuguese rims) with maxxis harddrive 2.1 (rear) and continental vertical 2.3 or firexcpro (front).
    for street i put a rear maxxis hookworm 2.5. it´s very heavy but it´s great for stairs...

    Being able to change its feeling by changing wheel sets, it´s just nice!
    just beware of diferent offsets on diferent hubs... i solved this with .2mm shims...


    the only stuff it was driving me nuts was the metel shock.

    it was overdampened from stock and with a very heavy rate coil (600lbsx2.0).

    i changed coil (450x2.0) and also released some of the nitrogen from it and now rides like a charm.
    it seems like another shock.i think it was overcharged...

    i don´t advise you to do this as you can hurt yourself or ruin the shock.

    it just worked for me as i´m a lightweight...

    Also i was a bit sad as the lips on the manitou stance blunt didn´t last much and i had to do maintenance very often....
    So i upgraded the dust seals and oil seals (enduroforkseals.com) and added oil lubrication.
    it´s so much better than grease. just wipe stanchions after riding and turn the bike upsidedown and the fork seems new every time you ride...

    i just love my bike...

    OK, I got somewhat motivated to take pictures so here goes.

    Custom pink Sonix with XTR and cool pink King hubs and headset:



    Werx Xeon with the new XT group (including Shadow rear der):



    Mary SS...the sweetest SS ever:



    Werx 7 set up with a RockShox Totem:



    .357 Nine DH bike with pink Travis fork. I've never even ridden this bike, but I'm thinking about starting to race some DH again:



    Masi 3VC Volumetrica with Campy Record 10:



    Mary XC project bike with handmade wooden fenders:



    Bone stock Masi CXR cross bike...super fun. I never thought I'd be caught dead on a cross bike; now I can't get enough!



    Yes, not a Haro but damn cool. Mountain Goat Route 29 with custom paint by the legendary Russ Pickett (he did all the wild paint for Mountain Goat back in the day):



    1985 Salsa a la Carte made by Ross Schaefer himself. This bike rides so nice.



    1991 Wicked Fat Chance. Another classic.

    NICE. You have got a lot of bikes.. And you have a .357 and you haven't even ridden it!? Man, I would kill if those went back into production.. Such nice bikes...
    And the colour coding on all the bikes is genious.. Mine doesn't look nice anymore I mean, green forks, white wheels, red tyres, blue frame.. Well, you get the picture.. (Except I haven't posted a picture of it yet!)

    But anyway. Dang, that is just a lot of bikes.

    And it looks like when you made fenders for the mary XC, you used spokes?

    Nice Haros. The Xeon is just dreamy. I liked how it's spec'd. Too bad I haven't seen one in person 'coz it's not available here. So is the Mary SS.

    Membership has its benefits!

    I just put all the parts that were on my road bike onto a new frame. True retro with a modern twist. This frame was built by Ted Kirkbride (who was Faliero Masi's right hand man back in the day) and Russ Denny with old lugs, tubing, and decals left over from the Masi California days. What an amazing ride this bike has!

    mary

    After 3 months of sitting on my bedroom floor. I have my Mary built. Started as a frame which I put a set of Hope hubs laced to arches with crossmarks. Stopping comes from bb7s with jagwire blue housing. The cockpit is all ritchey pro. It sits around 25 pounds complete but would like to find a way to get down to sub 24.

    I dont know, mine seem to be holding up to tonsof abuse (smaking on rocks) and the pins are replacable. With the shoes I wear while riding they stick like glue. So by terrible what do you mean?

    FTW I wish the comp had come in that color, i love that burnt orange rusty color.

    I think I know exactly what he means and feel the same way. There is no room for slip, so bumps etc my shoes stick and roll the pedal over thus the scar tissue on both of my Achilles tendons...

    i love these pedals. (especially compared to the plastic one that came on my old trek). the nice thing about these is that my shoes stick, but i can jump off quick if i need to. i dont want to be stuck to my bike if im about to eat it.

    btw kidcurry. i ordered this not knowing what the bike would look like, but took your advice and got the copper. its my favorite color for the escapes. thanks for the help!!

    Yeah, after about 3 months of hard riding.. Well, it's almost self explanitory.
    My shoes would literally fall off, and I would get pedal bite every time.
    Then I bit the bullet and bought $120 CB 5050XX pedals.. Best upgrade on the whole bike

    Yes between the Copper and Grey, Copper was my choose also but local bike shop having year end sale only had Grey, paid under $1000, orig listed for over $1600. Stock components are ok not the best, and the BB7's work fine, need to upgrade front fork and rear shock next project, got rid of the stock wheels, didn’t want to hassle with the maintenance.

    I'm 13, 5'10", and I ride my bike on trails, around the block, to the friends house, on errands, to a local food store, and I find the need to have a kickstand. I would rather have a kickstand than lean my bikes on stuff, and then scratch it. Besides, with the escape, I'm not really that concerned about weight

    X24 Backtrail

    This is a 2008 Haro X24 Backtrail.

    It's a BMX, and I like it...a lot!

    It likes trees...


    Prettiful...


    It rides awesome. Smoothest bike I've ever ridden (it being a singlespeed cruiser, and cruisers kick ass). Of course, at the pricepoint, the parts aren't the best (the wheels especially suck), and it is a bit heavy, but it's worth upgrading, the main frame being 4130 100% crmo. It's wicked beefy for a steel frame, and I think it'll hold up to my extraordinary skillful riding.

    tibug likey!

    MY recently finished Haro V4 SS. It's set up for street riding and is my townie.

    Haro V4 frame
    Manitou Sliver fork
    Azonic Strip Bars
    Easton EA50 stem
    FMF BMX cranks
    Wellgo Magnesium pedals
    XT hubs w/ Sun rhino-lyte rims
    WTB All-Terrainasaurus tires
    Avis brakes
    36/16 gearing

    I love the way it rides on the street. The only changes will be different gear ratios and a set of Redline Flight BMX cranks. Just to remind me of my old Group 1 from when I was a kid.

    I love it! As a Haro employee, I have mixed feelings about covering up the Haro logo, but I love the creative touch on this. Very cool!

    Here are some pics of my '06 Haro V3. This is my first and only favorite bike I originally purchased it at Sun and Ski in Houston. It has been an excellent bike and never left me to walk out of the trail. Some upgrades include:

    X-7 Shifters
    M540 pedals
    WTB Speed Disc wheels
    Tektro IO Discs
    Speed V saddle
    WTB Velociraptor's

    Not one of the fanciest Haro's but introduced me to this wonderful sport, and for that I will keep it forever! But income tax time, I might add a full squishy Haro to the stable.......

    And nevermind the reflector on the rear LOL Just took those wheels off a Jamis my buddy gave me. Looks tacky in the picture

    My wife got me an early Christmas present !!! It is an 08 Mary SS, size 18in. I added the pedals, my old trusty Koobi saddle and a Stan's kit for tubeless. I am very happy with it.
