So, I was offered to buy this bike from a LBS owner that knows that i have a devotion for a weird rides.
Must say i never saw an alloy haro extreme. He asks silly money for it, and i am so tempted to try it out.
Anyone had any experience with this steel haro's ugly brother? cheers

If it's cheap, buy an worry about it later.
If it's expensive, walk away.

If it's in between, good luck.

It will be the flex-stem giving you the feeling you are tipping, low front end and a moving stem not a good combination. They should have a fairly high rise stem fitted to compensate for the low front end....
