New bike I just finished building, Jamis Hardline on 29s
It looks like Haro's are still sold in bike shops so I'm sure its good. Other big brands like Schwinn and Mongoose became Walmart/Target bikes years ago which brings the quality down.have chance to get a ' haro' mnt bike, full susp, those bigger wheels, nice & new, are they any good??
The Quick n' Dirty races in Escondido are fun but they don't have a vintage class. And they only do them in May-June. For beginner men they have 16-36, 37-48 and 49+. It's 2 laps on a 4.5 mile course. It's not a very rough course but the Hard Rock with no suspension probably wouldn't be ideal. If you get that Newer Haro you mentioned you would be all set.racing bug is biting, always thought of mountain bike racing, is my rock hopper any good?, no suspension class?, vintage cls,?and the Big question ,age classes?thanx.best race org place to start?
Hopefully again soon. MTB racing is cheap compared to desert racing if you already have a bike.is there still gonna be mnt bike racing?, doggonit, i got the racing bug bad and im broke!, oh well,
If you compare it to me racing in the 90's then yes I was sandbagging. I'm definitely not in the same shape I was back then. Trying to get back close to it though LOL.are we sandbagging?, im gonna enter lowest class because ive Never raced a bicycle officially, plus im ' out of shape' too..
