question about backtrail x1

to start off i know alot of people who say haro sucks. well mike's bike only sells haro and trek and i didn't want a trek so u can say haro sucks if u want. but i think there good bikes.

anyway. i just put a 2005 haro x1 on "lay away". i was wondering if it would be decent for street riding. i know it is made for jumping which i will do, i was just wondering if it would be decent for street.

If your just starting then yes its ok for little bit. But if you get into it it will start to fall apart.

rice your fork and rims dont really matter for begginers. i really doesnt matter much to me cuz im flatlanding on it.

you dont really start worrying about tacoing a rim until youu start learning some more advanced tricks.
