    Haro Nyquist Backtrail

    what do you guys think of a Haro Nyquist Backtrail x1. I got it for free. Do you think its a good bike? How much is it worth if i change the seat,rear tire, and put grips on?

    It's not a good bike. Not worth very much.

    im with primo. you have to ditch like everything on there. especially the 1pc crank and huge drivetrain. for starters.

    its hi-tensile garbage. the frame is basically made of water pipe, and wont stand up to much abuse.

    its made of 4130, which is an alloy and chromoly. I thought chromoly was good? isnt that what most dirt jumping bikes are made of?

    the seat tube is the part of the frame that the seat goes into. the bike is worth maybe $100 depending on the dumb kid you sell it to, more likely you'll get around $50 - $75

    Yeah dude, stop stressing about what it's worth. It's a free bike. Ride it into the ground or give it away to someone else.
