New thread New bars on my Haro 10/17/2020 11:58 AM

Got my new bars, and got them bolted on. They feel sooo much better than the shorty 7” rise bars that came stock in the bike, and I think they also add to the aesthetics of the bike with the chrome vs the original painted bars. I think the taller bars

New thread Anybody got a line on some Haro bars? 10/12/2020 11:06 AM

Gents, I am in the market for a taller set of bars, and for as much as I understand that it is acceptable to mix brands on a bike, I am old and set in my ways so I want to keep everything on my bike Haro. I also would like to make sure that whatever ... more »

New thread Upper back pain related to bars? 10/7/2020 5:55 PM

So, I have heard a lot about shorter bars causing people to deal with lower back pain, but not much about pain in the upper back. I just got back into riding, and was hitting it pretty hard everyday for several days in a row on my new Haro Freestyler ... more »

So I noticed that on my new bike, I hear a soft clicking sound with each turn of the pedals when riding up a hill (so, basically under load). I did a google search, and about all that I was able to decipher from the results was to check all of the lower ... more »

New thread Will a 20.5” top bar work for a rider over 6’00” tall? 9/23/2020 6:19 PM

So, I am slowly learning by reading as much as I can. Meanwhile, I want to get a complete bike ASAP so that I can dip my toes in the water, rather than dive into building something from parts made by a bunch of companies that I’ve never heard of due ... more »

New thread Help an old fat man pick a bike 9/22/2020 11:40 AM

So, I was a child of the 80’s, and was pretty into BMX bikes growing up. Once I started driving, I kinda left the bike scene behind, and have been away for a lot of years. My pride and joy back when I was young, was an old Haro Freestyler with a set ... more »
