Although it wasn’t public knowledge, Haro has spent a little over a year creating a complete bike that Dennis Enarson was proud to put his name on. The result? His signature SD V2 frame complete with top-notch Haro and Demolition products. The bike even comes stock with a freecoaster! We reached out to John Buultjens, Haro brand manager and the guy behind this bike, to get some details.PhotoHow long was this bike in the works?
Dennis and I started talking about the collaboration back in August 2013.

Were you involved in this project since the inception?
100% involvement. It was my idea to have a Dennis Enarson complete bike with Demolition and Markit product on it.

I know it was important to you and to Dennis to get some Demolition parts on there. What went in to making that happen?
Called (Brian) Castillo and he was stoked on the idea. Love that guy!

Is this the first complete Haro has ever done with a free coaster?

Back in 1999, we had the Chad DeGroot Master, but this is the first street-specific bike with a coaster.

What made you go with a freecoaster on this bike?
The bike and all of the components replicate what Dennis rides. He rides a Demolition coaster, but it all came down to price point so we had to supply our own.

Tell us a little about the SD Fork…

The SD Fork was designed whilst we were filming a day in the life with Dennis. There he was, grinding his dropouts. I’m like “Dude, what are you doing?” He continued to tell me the dropout catches on ledges and that he runs a thinner peg. So, I went back to the office and worked on the SD fork. 32mm offset with a 32mm circumference dropout, perfect for his Demolition peg.

The maroon frame looks great. Will this color be available as a frame only or only in this complete?
This frame will also be available. It will also come in black and metallic olive. The olive is sick!

What did Dennis think of the finished product?
He couldn’t believe it. Dennis actually said it looks and feels like his personal bike. Kenny Enarson (Dennis’ dad) loved the complete so much that we had to give him one.

Has Dennis hopped on one of these right out of the box yet?
Yes, when he was in the office the other week. He couldn’t believe how dialed the bike felt.

How did the bike go over at Interbike?
Amazingly. Even a few of our competitors complimented us on the SD complete.

Will we see any more super high-end bikes like this from Haro in the future?
For sure. We are back on track with out innovation and there’s a lot more to come.

If someone wants to pick one of these up, what should they do?

Google your local Haro dealer. They will most likely have the SD in stock.
