Known much more for their BMX bikes and bits, Haro are also showing a new range of mountain bikes. With a variety of tyre widths and setups, the range is aimed at being affordable and within reach of the average rider. Starting with a hybrid on bouncy forks, it goes all the way up to 27.5+ full sussers.
David started mountain biking in the 90’s, by which he means “Ineptly jumping a Saracen Kili Racer off anything available in a nearby industrial estate”. After growing up and living in some extremely flat places, David moved to Yorkshire specifically for the mountain biking. This felt like a horrible mistake at first, because the hills are so steep, but you get used to them pretty quickly.
Previously, David trifled with road and BMX, but mountain bikes always won. He’s most at peace battering down a rough trail, quietly fixing everything that does to a bike, or trying to figure out if that one click of compression damping has made things marginally better or worse. The inept jumping continues to this day.
