Hi everyone,has anyone seen the latest Haro Group 1 SX Pro,2005 model?Ive seen a specs list on the bike and it sounds pretty close to the GT Ultra Box.Id love some opinions on this bike please.Also are carbon forks ok for big guys(200lbs)? Also for roughly the same price which race bike would you choose out of the Haro,the GT Ultra Box(05) and the Redline Flite Pro XL(05)?

I'm partial to the ultra box, it has always outperformed all other bikes in its high end catagory, and its just plain STIFF! The Haro however puts down a just plain tempting lineup of top of the line components that would seal the deal for me! Redline is fairly popular down there and for good reason, they make great bikes, but I would steer towards something different. The carbon fork shouldnt give you problems unless you go riding it on the streets or go out dirt jumping doing tricks with it. My vote goes for the damn sexy haro or the time trued ultra box.
I couldnt vote for both so I voted for the old favorite!!

cf forks are bad for big guys. I know they are strong but trust me on this one . I'm 6ft and 200 and it will hurt alot when you find out I'm right.

Good call i reckon...Id hate to have them collapse.Ive also heard the carbon forks actually are just a carbon wrap over the alloy tube inside.
