    Haro F3

    my friend..who is standing right next to me...just asked me if i could put this post on here......he asks.."is the Haro F3 a good bike for somebody who does street riding mostly with a little dirt also"....he pretty much is an all-around guy.....alot of different styles rolled into one person...he only wants to know how good the bike is and if there are any upgrade parts that would make this bike even better.

    they work great in dirt and are also good for places like the skatepark if thats what you plan on using it for

    The F3 has compact geometry more suited to street / flat. For dirt, you'll want a longer top tube and relaxed head / seat tube angles. Nyquists and Backtrails are a good bet if you're going Haro.

    No, it doesn't. But he hasn't bought the bike yet, and is asking for advice. All things being equal, dirt geometry is better for dirt than street/flat geometry. You're biased toward *your* bike. Big surprise. I used a 19" Quamen for street and park for a solid year before I built up my S&M, that felt weird to me too. But I got used to it, and came out riding better than I ever was before.

    And I didn't say you couldn't. You're making a point I never contested.

    Tell him to ride what he's got until he's good enough to tell the difference.

    Let me finish that statement for you. If it breaks or cracks due to defects in materials or workmanship during the useful life of the product. Most likely this applies to the original owner only. Racing, jumping, or participating in certain activities may void the warranty as well. Do I need to look up their actual warranty, or do you get the idea?
