Haro Expert 2013 for $1000 - can I get something like it for 800 elsewhere? Anonymous 03/16/14(Sun)01:36 UTC+1 No.636862 Report


Can buy this Haro Expert 2013 at a LBS for $1000. That's the top of my price range, I'd prefer to pay $700-800 for a summer mt. bike. The Haro rode well, but then again I havn't ridden a mt. bike in years. Any advice if I keep looking, or is this a good deal?

>mfw LBS is selling me $200 more than I can afford, saying my price range buys a shit bike but for $200 more I get a "great bike." Hours of research online gets me nowhere but more options and questions.

I'm at a loss.

It's been a few years since I put time into researching this stuff and that was for a road bike. With my new job, I just don't have the time and really want to make a decision soon. I'm over my head with this stuff. Every time I go to a bike shop they try to sell over my price point and I leave. I'd like to start over and if anyone of you could point me in the right direction it would be GREATLY appreciated.

I live in Pittsburgh, PA. Hilly terrain. I'm gonna ride on rail trails, up and down not very aggressive dirt trails, and road riding.
After testing some bikes at my LBS I like the idea of a lockout front shock, but I am throwing all preconceived notions out the window.

I'm 6' with a 33" - 32.5" inseam.

Price range is $600 - $900

Thanks for any help.

$700 and similarly equipped if you can do your own work.

Anything that can mount 32mm or larger tires will work for the rail trails around here. The hills are not too bad. They can go up to 30% but only for short stretches.

The trek dealer I deal with from time to time cut me a nice deal on a bike back in 2008. For the MSRP of the trek Valencia(hybrid with discs) they threw in a pair of fenders, swapped stem, and a nice Arbus lock. $700 for the bike and $80 in accessories was a good deal for going through a shop at the time IMO.

They are no longer a trek dealer because other shops that carried Trek bitched about them cutting deals and stealing business. They did pick up jamis and still carry everything you can get from QBP. Scholl's up in Warrendale on 19 is the shop if you want to check them out.
