The Steel Reserve Eight: the ultimate play bike!

If you're looking for a bike that's a guaranteed good time, check out the Steel Reserve 8. This probably won't be the bike you'll take on a 20-mile cross country ride, but it will be the bike you reach for time and time again for dirt jumping, urban assault, pump track, and even dual slalom.

With a sweet cromoly steel frame designed specifically for freestyle MTB, a Marzocchi Dirt Jump 2 80mm travel fork, SRAM X.9 8-speed rear derailleur, Avid BB5 mechanical disc brakes, and a host of other dirt-worthy parts on it, the Steel Reserve 8 is ready to rip right out of the box!

Don't just take our word for it. Check out the video John Lee from the UK sent to us of him shredding his Steel Reserve 8 through the English countryside. If this doesn't make you want to invest in a play bike, we don't know what will. Looks like he's having a killer time.


Ray's MTB Park "Odd Couple" Contest

Haro was well represented at the "Odd Couple" contest at Ray's MTB Park held on January 31st...Greg Watts, Phil Sundbaum, and Brian Miller all made the trip to this awesome indoor riding playground.

The Odd Couple contest works a little different from all the other contests out there...each MTB rider teams up with a BMX rider and they shoot a video. Then the video is put up to a "people's choice" where the crowd votes with their applause.

Watts teamed up with Haro's Steve Woodward, Sundbaum was paired up with Haro's Ronnie Napolitano, and Brian Miller chose to ride with Eastern's Adam Banton. After it was all said and done, Brian Miller's team was the top-placing Haro team with a fine 4th place finish. Sadly, Greg and Phil didn't make the wood, but they did make some pretty cool videos.

Check 'em out below!
