Build up of a haro frame

I tried the Nyquist r1 at my lbs and loved it. I have always had a bmx bike but never one with the smaller sprocket, I could pick up speed so much faster. I am thinking of just buying the frame of the r1 and building it up with my own components that I purchase. I dont have 300$ to spend on a custom built frame so any cheap frames that have the same exact specs and whats the deal with everyone hating on Haro? I like to ride dirt and just messing around and crusing in the street.

Not everyone hates Haro, only the misinformed.

So what should I do about this? Look for a frame that has been built with the exact same specs?

And the people that had a haro and it didn't last...

I admit, that haros are good bikes for beginers, only becasue wihtin 1 year parts will start to break on it, and they will have to learn about the part and how to replace it. Thats how I learned about bikes, i had a haro, when something broke i learned exactly what to replace and how to do it.

Newsflash - Haro also makes race bikes, which have a tendency to be problem free.

I have actually worked on a Haro race bike recently. My buddy just picked one up for $35, all that was wrong with it was that i was covered in spray paint. But we stripped it completely down sprayed the painted parts with some carburator cleaner, the thign was like new.

Covered in spraypaint...35 bucks...this isn't a hard one to figure out.

Nah It wasn't stolen. I know the kid he bought, it from, and was there the day the kid bought it a few years back. And also I can tell a stolen bike from a not stolen bike.

Kinda like how you can tell quality parts from janky parts just by looking at them, I get it.

The thing is that I am not new at all to bmx but just knew to the current day bikes and parts. I had oldschool bikes with light frames that I would build up myself. So seeing as I am not a noob should I still get it. I was thinking of buying the complete bike just so I can have something to ride

if you want the nyquist then get the frame, if you have good parts to build around it. i would not put oldschool bmx parts on a brand new haro. you probly know this, it is alot more money to custom build a bike then buy the complete. if i were you i would get the complete and upgrade as you need to.

i have had my haro for around a year and a half and it treats me good. it isnt the bike it is the rider. my freind payed around 400 for his backtrail, and he always hurts his nuts when he jumps, and these are like not even 3 ft jumps.

Thats what I was thinking of doing. It would be a lot nicer to upgrade as I go so I could see the inprovements, and just to be a fun little project. Maybe later I would end up repainting it.

Ex you're really starting to piss me off. I know for a fact the bike is not stolen. What're you 30? You're so god damn insecure about yourself you spend you spare time ridiculing anything I or under 15 says. What do you do in your spare time? Watch bicycle racing and fondle yourself, then go on bikeforums and act like a total ass?

Maybe I was wrong, maybe you truly are a moron. I'm not going to respond to your childish attempt at insulting me. You are the one that constantly makes stupid comments and talks out your ass. For the benefit of the rest of the forum readers, please explain how you can "Tell a stolen bike from a not stolen bike".

And we're still waiting for photos of your chopper. Including close-ups of your welding that we've heard so much about.

Why should I bother? I really don't care what you think of me, you live in Australia, so no you don't know me. Your opinion on what I do doesn't matter. I dont have to prove myself to anyone, but me. This is the god damn internet so I don't really give a ****.

You don't have to prove anything to anyone, anymore. We've known for a couple months that you're a total dumbass.

Well, yes, but he only started posting on a regular basis recently. Before then, he was on stealth mode, spouting out disinformation only on a bi-monthly basis.

I know what you mean, but I hate when people use that word. Handicapped people generally have no choice, and you really should offer them some compassion. Now, as far as ignorant people, there's just no excuse for them.
