Thanks for the kind words.

It rides beautifully - sharp steering.

Spec is OEM + , close to catalogue spec but subtle upgrades.

Now entered in Bike Of The Month!!

A sterling example of a 'budget' bike punching well over its weight... :wink:

Yeah I suppose so.

It was actually next to top of the Haro range (and the top one had the same frame) in 1991 so you could argue its not a budget bike. They did a load of other more conventional framed bikes lower down but still with the distinctive top tube.

Glad you like it anyway. Probably going to get a DX short cage rear mech on it when I find one (or a XT - even better) but it works like a dream at the moment.
