No they have 3 signature bikes out I think. I forget the other people's that they have. I have a Haro x3

Also have a Haro Backtrail X1 I use for dirt, don't have a picture of that one though.

i thought he was building one. Best quality if you buy parts instead of buying full bike.
Edit: Haros are heavy unless you find the right one Take off the Gyro and Reflectors and that bike might be cool

Edit #2: A couple friends of mine have the TRl. They are good bikes and hold up nicely

The x3 isn't really that heavy, 27 pounds I think, fine for me. I don't want to take the gyro off, just because straight cables can get tangled even if you don't do tailwhips or barspins. Can't take the reflectors off either, I was hit by a car at night last year and my mom won't let me take it off haha.

I never liked the idea of riding brakeless. Yeah it makes the bike look cleaner and lighter, but I always use my brakes. Riding around my neighborhood I always use my brakes. What if you have to stop suddenly for a car or something? I'd rather not burn my tire and shoe out by jamming my foot in my rear tire. My friend hasn't used brakes in a long time, he's actually gotten really good at not jamming his foot in his tire. I have no idea how he does it, I love my brakes :).

I had to do that all the time, just turn sharp to slow down, and if emergency stop, put your feet on the ground really hard and like take short hard steps lol. it works for me, just a little slower then brakes.

Yeah the whole brakeless thing isn't for me...

But yeah, I am buying a complete just because its cheaper and I don't have all that much money. I'll just get a complete and then as I get money I'll get all the better stuff. I am definitely set on Eastern now and its either the Ramrodder or Traildigger. They both got 25T front and 9T rear which is good and the Traildigger is a bit lighter but then again more money, so idk. Ultimately I'd like to get a real good one like the jane or Ace of Spades... but that's not in the question now. My price range is like $300-$400 right now.

You also want a good strong parts though. Try and get chromoly frame, fork, and bars. Chromoly is a lot stronger than hi-tensile.

Well right now I'm just getting whatever comes with the complete and like I said I'll get better bars/forks/cranks/pedals/sprockets and all that once I get enough money.
