    Hello from a new (old) guy

    I'm 31 and really stoked right now because I just got my 1st 20" in about 15 years. I used to ride everyday when I was in junior and high school. My 1st bike was an 86 Haro Master. I bought it at a Haro show when Ron Wilkerson, Brian Blyther, and Dennis McCoy Were in town. After that was stolen about two months after that I had a multitude of other bikes....GT Performers, Kuwahara Magician, a bright orange california freestyle, etc....

    I got out of bikes in high school but had been itching to ride again lately for some reason (for the last year or so). I'd been looking for another old Haro Master...like an 88 Team Model or something. But after doing some research I decided I wanted a newer, better engineered bike. I initially had purchased one of the limited edition Haro Freestyles autographed by Bob Haro but a co-worker bought it off me.

    I ended up getting this instead....



    I really like it alot. Standard frame, forks, raw strip bars, big chese grips, odyssey evolver front and rear brakes, snafu tires, odyssey hazard wheels, odyssey 99er seat, snafu stem, snafu u/l brake levers, primo pedals, primo powerbites, kink 43t sprocket, kink pegs and tensioners for the rear, KMC chain, etc...only paid $300 for it :-)

    After I got it I ordered a bunch of stuff from dans comp. Snafu pedals, snafu poly grips, primo hemmeroid alloy seat and ram post, snafu bar ends, a smaller 39T standard byke sprocket, all new snafu cables throughout....

    It's fun riding again. I used to be able to do big bunny hops no problem....I'm still ok but will have to practice. Flatland was more my thing back in the day anyways.....

    Thanks !

    That's a very nice looking bike and the parts list sounds great. Your sprocket and seat post height do give you away as an old school rider tho

    I'm a couple of years older and trying to get into it again but I'm still waiting for more parts to get here and finish the bike. Cheers.

    Good work fella, same used to ride 14-18yrs or so, so now ;30 yrs I got a SE 1 week ago.
    Know what you mean gonna take a bit of practice, basics are there, but rest will come with confidence and practicing for me I think, i.e manual is quite difficult I am finding,
    enjoy, and I'm sure there will be more oldies joining , my flatmate wants one now and he's 30 as well

    later and happy riding.
