it is full chromoly, but the forks and bars are almost certainly not heat treated meaning they're more prone to bending but should still last you just fine. I only mention that cause if you're gonna be grinding, a lot of times the fork dropouts on stock ... more »

That is 100% the front hub having a very slight wobble to it, even if you can't feel it by hand. A lot of press fit hubs, even new ones, might do that even when fully tightened. I'm not sure if there's a "break in" period or what so you're stuck for ... more »

do this. I had a Cult front hub guard get stuck before (Genius design making press fit/threadless hub guards for threaded hubs /s), and had to use a pipe wrench to get it off because of how tightly seized onto the axle it was. You can try bolting your ... more »

Is he behind it? I honestly don't know, I've never even heard of them until a couple weeks ago but I guess that doesn't mean they're not big or not well known either.

Looks like a 2004 Haro f2... not 100% sure on that though but photos of the same bike on bmx museum look similar. Google tells me it was $200 when it was brand new... so hard pass on that for anything more than like $30
