Even entry level Haro's should be OK if tuned up properly and maintained.

It actually seems like a good bike. And the 2003 Race bikes look like SE's.

That makes no sense at all. Race bikes are lighter than other bmx's due to the use of aluminum parts, etc...

As far as I know, all Haro bikes are quality bikes. So I don't think the F5 is an exception.
