Welcome! I agree, the forums are pretty good. What kind of riding do you mostly do with the Haro?

Street, open road, and paved park or crushed limestone trails. Went on a 7-mile ride last night with my in-laws and wife. Bike Bunny hops like a dream. Fast and smooth rolling I love it! The bike made it feel easy did probably half the ride standing up like on a BMX could have gone another 10 miles. Raced my brother in laws new Giant Talon MTB from a dig on the pavement and destroyed it! He has more gears but I got so far ahead it did not matter, the Haro sprints like a BMX bike! Nicest riding bike I have ever owned, to be honest. If your local shop has one I highly suggest you take it for a test ride. I went to the shop to look at a Fast RIpper and this Haro. I rode both the SE Fast ripper is nice and very BMX ish, However, the cost difference and the way the Haro rode I just had to get the Haro. I plan to put some Cruiser BMX bars on it already bought a Haro BMX stem and found some sweet 90's retro Haro BMX pads on ebay that match the bike. Just making it my own and putting some rise in the bars.

Nice! Sounds like fun. A bike like that is what's missing in my stable.
