haro should put forks made for what the bike is designed for, not those cross country forks. i cracked my forks and my headtube doing this 20 foot drop
great bike for the price, don't buy if u r going to use it for downhill or any big drops, haro is a great company and they stick to their warranty, i got a new X3 for breaking my X2. if u r entry level rider this bike would be perfect
Yes I would recommend it to a friend

Awesome price for an entry level freeride/ downhill bike. The component level is very good. This bike soaked up boulders and gaps like they weren't even there. The frame is identical to other frames costing a lot more (Santacruz, Yeti). I'm completely satisfied with this bike and can't wait to hit the trail again.
Its heavy. If your planning to do cross country with climbs you won't have fun. The height on the bike is very clumbsy on steep climbs. This could be overcome with an adjustable fork.

I came upon a steep gap at full speed and my heart stopped, before I new it I was over the gap and didn't even feel it. Whereas on my cross country bike I would eaten dirt. Thats the test for me and what I was looking for.
