Haro Freestyler 40th anniversary ride out

4 05 2022

If you’re in California in early July, this might be the event to check out!

John Buultjens is organizing a ride out with none other than the OG freestyler himself, Bob Haro!

It’s all being done in support, and celebration of, the 40th anniversary of the Haro Freestyler.

They’ll be giving away a 26″ Haro Freestyler after the ride, along with a bunch of other prizes (plenty of Haro swag, I would imagine). The Lost Abbey brewery is also aboard for the post-ride beverages and East Coast Pizza will be providing the post-ride carb replenishment.

Sounds like a good time if you can make it!





2020 Haro cruisers continue that retro vibe

25 01 2019

It appears where Interbike left off, CABDA has picked up.

In a Ride BMX coverage of the event, Haro’s John Buultjens dropped some teasers of some new additions to the 2020 lineup.

(Cruiser stuff starts at 9:09)

BMX Sloride:

A “signature” cruiser for Brian Blyther, Mike Dominguez and Xavier Mendez. (The BMX stands for Brian,Mike, Xavier).

It features an alloy frame with cro-mo forks and bars. 24, 26 and 29″ versions are planned.

 

Cab Dragon

A Steve Caballero collab with 27.5″ wheels and 8 speeds of cruising fury. You’ll be the envy of the beach with this one.

DMC cruiser

Dennis “DMC” McCoy also gets a cruiser in his honor. Twin top-tube alloy frame and a cro-mo fork.  24, 26 and 29″ versions are planned (although I think they’re tentative on the 29er).

 

Too be honest, I’m a bit surprised by the use of an alloy frame for a twin-top tube DMC frame.

It will be interesting to see what the reaction of buyers is to that detail.

Which we’ll find out soon enough…expect these cruisers to hit dealers this summer.
