The Haro Extreme X3 is basically a copy of a Santa Cruz bullit with cheaper parts. Bike Magazine just did a quick test on it and gave it pretty good reviews. It's definately a budget bike, but can easily be upgraded as parts wear out. It's a freeride bike and thus, is a little on the heavier side. It's got a long wheelbase and handles well in fireroad situations. The longer wheelbase also means you'll be fighting it in tight singletrack. It's a great deal and a good looking bike!
BTW, the shop where I work IS a Haro dealer and they've got a lot of good bikes well spec'd, but don't get a lot of press. I dunno why not. They've got some top seeded pros in XC and 4x. Seamus McGrath and Mike King are the two I can remember. There are two or three more that are well know.
