When Adrian Bogdan in Stephens City, VA was shopping for a new bike, some of the full suspension bikes on the market weren't all that appealing to to him. He really liked the geometry of his 2003 Haro V4 hardtail and the way that bike rode, but was ready to upgrade to something with nicer parts on it and would be a little lighter weight.
Adrian decided to hang on to his V4 and upgrade all of the parts on it. Boy oh boy, did he ever upgrade! He started out by getting the frame powdercoated white and chose to use red as his accent color. He added sweet bits to his frame like a DT Swiss Carbon fork, SRAM X0 shifters and rear derailleur, Thomson stem and post, Ritchey WCS carbon bars, a red ano Cane Creek headset, and white rims laced to red ano Novatec hubs (and red spokes!).
We're convinced that Adrian's V4 is the most upgraded V4 on the planet. If someone else out there has one that has more upgrades on it than this one, let us know!
Nice work, Adrian!
