    0/10.

    It's stock, what do you expect?

    Upgrades List:
    -new frame
    -all new parts

    Backtrail x2 isn't that good- should have atleast gotten the x3 if you had to buy a Haro. Otherwise, you should have gotten something by a more reputable company that mainly supplies to advanced/expert/pro riders; unless you are just going to ride that bike for a year or two and then quit BMX all together, it's not worth upgrading. If you really wanted to upgrade later on, you should have bought you a better bike. The less money you spend when you start, the more money you are going to spend later on (if you upgrade and/or your parts break).

    You should have said that at the beggining then. But it is still proabably a 0/10, maybe a 1/10.

    BTW, it's ODYSSEY

    As things break, replace them. Thats how you learn about your bike.

    I'd say a 0.5/10

    First off, It's a bike, not a beuty pagent(sp?).
    Secondly, you don't need our apporval to ride your bike.
    Upgrade your bike to your standards so it suitable for you, a bike upgraded to someone elses standards isn't going to help you.
    Fusion is made by Haro.
    Oh, and don't upgrade unless you have to. Dont waste your money on parts you dont need. Just replace stuff that breaks.

    I have a backtrail x2 as well. I'm just getting back into BMX since the good old 80's and Haro was the only brand I recognized at the bike shop, too bad they are not as good as they used to be.. Or, perhaps they used to be the best you could get and now they've just been surpassed by better niche competitors. But my bike seems decent; I'll probably break a limb before I break the frame. I did dent the side wall on the back rim nicely when I didn't time a bunnyhop just right and jammed the wheel down on a peice of lumber. But I was thinking of getting a chrome back wheel anyway because I have very little stopping power.

    Your Backtrail X2, to be honest, is far from Haro's best complete, but its still pretty nice, i have an X3 and a X1(just the frame, everything else is broken)

    They still have some pretty good completes, and they have a parts line out called Premium, which is basically high end Haro parts.
