thats a cracking looking bike
not sure about the belt drive tho


Can't do a belt drive on a non-estay bike without cutting something (either a chainstay or a belt), so maybe it's there just because it's possible?

^ Can we see a better picture of the HARO Extreme with the bolt on rear triangle - not sure I've ever seen one before?

incorrigible - let me know if you would be willing to sell a large e-stay frame & ship to UK!

I posted a couple of pics in the "Show Us Your Haros" thread:
http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewto ... sc&start=0

I'll take some better pics when I get around to rebuilding it. I'm waiting for some sweet NOS Michelin Wildgrippers in orange that I just got on eBay. They should match the orange decals nicely.

If you have a particular pic preference (angle, lighting, etc.), just let me know. I'll be happy to oblige.

Thanks for the compliment.

The fluoro Haro is definitely too tall for me, so I'll keep you in mind when I decide to sell, but I want to find one in my size before I sell it.

Other than that, just about everything else you see in the pic are all keepers, although they may be quite a "barn find" for someone after I pass on (don't anyone get any ideas, though; I've got dogs, alarms, weapons.......I won't go quietly, that's for sure :lol: ).

Can someone remind me what the point of E-stay was? Is it just to stop chain bashing chainstay and/or stop chain suck?

A mate of mine has an E-stay Al-Mega with early Rock Shox... the frame has cracked, just like everyone else's Al-Mega as far as I can tell. Don't rate 'em myself.

I believe the main reasons were to eliminate chainsuck and to allow much greater tyre clearance....
