I just got my new Haro F4. Let me know whatcha think. It cost me $265 and I'm VERY satisfied with it so far. Pics below.

I usually post in the MTB forum but I decided to get a BMX bike to ride around the skateparks with some buddies.

take off the reflectors, dont go into a skatepark with the reflectors on your bike, nice color though.

i have a army/camo green backtrail.

the bars are real nice huh. same w/ the grips

Where are the reflectors? It looks pretty nice for 265. Only thing I would say is take the pegs off the side you dont grind on, unless you grind on both sides.

Reflectors are gone. I poped um off the minute I got home. No need for reflectors when riding at the parks. I don't prefer one side over the other. So for now all pegs stay. If I choose one side for grinding i'll take the other side off.

Yeah, I like the 'Clay' color looks really nice.

I still haven't figured out the best way to take the pedal reflectors off. The ones on my other Haro (X3 MTB) broke off in a week. So we'll see what happens.

I concur, all the ones I seen are either screw on reflectors, or you get a flat head screwdriver and pop em off

Oh yeah, in one case on a midrange Huffy (Just a notch above Walmart level) I have seen, the reflector slided out out of the pedal. It slides back in with a click. Watch out for those, too

I might swap the pedals for the ones on my MTB. I like them more. But they pins tear up your shins. I poped um off anyways. The pedals are some cheap ones. But MUCH better then those walmart bikes.

Is that so? I really haven't looked at it yet. Just a thought that came to my mind when I was thinking of a response. Oh well.

Black rims, the paint tends to get worn off by the brake pads. Silver, not as much, since there isn't really any paint to scrape off.

Pretty nice looking bike. No pics of you and the bike in action?

I have black aluminium rims, polished down to the metal on the sides (stock), and can confirm, brake are useless, might as well have butter on my rims.
