What crosses your mind when you hear the acronym “BMX?” Well, if youre anything like 2/3s of the world, then its a Haro F1, gleaming in day-glow yellow and black.
The F1 pushes all the right button and checks all the right columns when it comes to budget-priced grinding. While not the cheapest bike in this segment, it becomes very clear very quickly where that little bit of extra cash went in construction. As anyone whose ever bolted bike-store pegs onto a department store special can tell you, the improvements that the F1 can boast over said trash is certain to be a worthwhile investment.
A reduced-weight frame makes crossovers and jumps a much less taxing proposal, and the true-forged crankset helps to ensure that nothing bends where it isnt supposed to be on landing. An Ende rotor and steel pegs make insane stunts an afterthought. 36H Rims are generally the rule of the day in this class, but using super-strong Weinmanns wrapped in equally proficient Haro MS4 tires is just going above and beyond the call.
Truly, this is BMX at its core. This is the bike every young shredder dreams about on Christmas Eve, expensive enough to be prized but cheap enough to be attainable, and the very definition of the sport. Buy one, and commence your reign of terror.
