I have one of those! Great bike to start with,don't kick yourself when you find yourself wanting better parts later. It took about 9months as I broke stuff to replace the parts now the only factory parts are the frame ,chain and seat post.The frame is crazy tuff. I had to shave the drop outs because I had an older one with the super huge hub guards. Let me know how it goes,I'm thinking of getting a new mirra frame for a custom build.

i'm suprised u didn't say anything bad since i got a haro. but i'm not complaining.

what sucks though is when i do have enough money to get it off lay away there will probably be snow on the ground so i won't be able to ride it anyway.

put super tiny gearing on and you'll be like a snow mobile (not really, just more or less)
