    may I suggest running around a 11/25 set up if you're riding flatland.

    just make sure you have your rear brakes (if you run them) mounted on the seat stays with this kind of set up!

    I'm not sure where you would find any sprockets with more quality designed specifically for flatland then flatlandfuel. There are a couple on there for 20 bucks that are both really high quality and will last years.

    I would probably get the Dividual one as the size is a little bit smaller and I know that Dividual products are machined to incredibly high standards.

    If I wanted to convert my Haro F3 to a flatland bike what would I have to do? Its just temporary untill I get the M6.

    Nothing, you shouldn't invest one penny in a bike you already own if you are going to buy a complete brand new bike. If you were building something up from parts, then that would be different. But, you are going to buy a bike that will have components on it that you could spend a hundred bucks or more on very quickly right now.

    I gotta say though, there are much better flatland complete bikes than the M6. Haro doesn't build a flatland bike right now. They build a street bike then try to make it into a flatland bike. The completes on flatlandfuel are much more value for your money and have a higher grade of components, geometry, and style for your hard earned cash.

    The Haro M6 looks pretty much like a flatland bike to me.

    Haro doesn't have any flatlanders on the team and does not make any true flatland specific bikes. The M6 is a good dual-purpose bike, but not a really good flatland only bike. Or, more accurately, if you are only going to ride flatland, then there are better bikes for the money for sure.

    The Hoffman Momentum PL1 for example is one of the best complete bikes on the market using top notch components. The Ares completes are also 100% rider input designed with a focus specifically on flatland. They aren't built to handle street, they are built for flatland, and flatland only.

    The Haros are good, but just not the best if flatland is specifically what you are looking to do. I have spoken with Haro about this and they are very insistent that they want the Master to remain 'dual-purpose' and not flatland specific.
