Haro sx comp

Hey, I was wondering if a haro sx comp could hold up to a little dirt jumping and park riding. I am 5 foot 8, 130 pounds, and the most air i get with a flat landing is like 2.5 to 3 feet, and the most air dirt jumping is like 4 feet. Is a race bike like this ok, or should I stick with chromoly

Definitely go big with your race bike. And remember, you don't really need to wear that helmet.

You can probably pull it off, the wheels will need some maintinence, but most things should be alright. Most people's "street" bikes now adays are race bikes w/ 14mm rear axles.
