I have about 400 to spend, and was looking at a LBS and seen a haro flight two Haro Bikes - MTB - Bikes - Flightline - Flightline Two on sale for 350.. Would I see a big upgrade or what? The LBS side they would throw in slicks with thicker thread on the edges for an easier ride...
I did seaches for Haro bikes and haven't really seen much.. Any input or information.. Suggestions.. Much appreciated. Thank you!
OH! I ride about 10-30 miles a day, a couple times a week on gravel for about 100 yards other than that, mostly roads. Hilly area.. I am 5'9'' and 230 lbs.
That Haro isn't going to set any speed records, but it should be faster (and probably lighter) than what you got now. You'll have to give it a test ride to see if you really like it, though.
Edit: Or you might be able to score an entry level hybrid for not much more than your budget. Models to look for would Giant Escape, Trek 7.1 FX, Kona Dew... just about every brand will have something similar.
