    Haro has much stronger roots in freestyle than Specialized who came in from the Mt. Bike side of things and has come a long way, but isn't there yet.

    There are also a lot of brands other than Haro that are excellent.

    freestyle IS park & street by the way.

    Freestyle is: dirt, vert, street, park, and flatland
    Freestyle is NOT: Racing

    If you do one of the five things listed, then you are a freestyle bmx rider. If you race, you are a bmx racer.

    If you rode JUST street you would be a freestyle rider.

    It's like if you are a figure skater - you are an ice skater
    If you are a hockey player - you are an ice skater
    If you are a speed skater - you are an ice skater

    Freestyle bikes are designed to do tricks on and bmx bikes (racing) are not. Racing bikes are typically much ligher, and use different geometry and design to make them faster around the track. Flatland is about the only aspect that really uses a different design than street/dirt/vert, but 90% of flatland tricks can pretty much be done on any freestyle bike.

    haro and specialized suck. specialized is prolly only good for racing, but i broke so many parts on my specialized, and my forks looked like i was riding a chopper. I'm not a heavy rider either. Haro is just over-beefed, so everything is real heavy, and its generally of a ****ty quality. if you want decent ****, pick up a dan's comp catalog (www.danscomp.com) and grab some FBM, Kink, or S&M parts. the S&M dirtbike classic is an awesome complete bike, for a price comparable to most haro/specialized trash.
