Re: Haro kneesaver fans rejoice! 2018's inside.

My replacement bars came from Haro for my 2018 complete Master.  Yes, you do send back the old ones on their dime.

They are perfectly straight.  The one disappointment is that they are not clear coated like the originals.  So my frame and fork are clear coated over the decals and now the new bars are not.

Oh well.  They’re awesome.  Perfectly straight.  I MEASURED!  Lol.  Welds are perfect and clean.  Chrome is perfect.  The paint matches perfect also.  One upside to no clear coat is that you can see the chevrons at the ends of the clamp area more clearly.

I’m gonna order another set.  So cool cool

So the general consensus is that the new ones are worth buying?  I'm seriously considering ordering a pair for my Big Daddy to replace some Odyssey Bar Mitzvah bars.

Yes, all the new ones are straight according to all the peoples responses here and other threads ive read.  I would think these were all inspected one by one since the first batch were so bad.

Welcome to the site!

DJ I really gave it some thought about picking one up,but I cannot justify paying around $200 for them.Too much for a handlebar I most likely will never use.

Just got the new Kneesaver from FF and it's perfect! I liked it so much that I bought another one for my race bike. Here it is on the 17 Flatland Master:

Get them while you can!  No telling how many were made and how many are available...

Here it is on my Haro Monocoque. The 2nd one I ordered will go to this bike.

Another shot of the Master. I'm really liking the chrome rear/all black up front.

Here's the new KS compared to the 1988 version. They are very similar, except the old one has more backsweep. The new one feels much better than the old.

The bar look much better on the Master vs on the Monocoque.

Hey thanks! I was riding the Coq yesterday and noticed how thick and long it is. Talking about the monocoque.

Re: Haro kneesaver fans rejoice! 2018's inside.

Anyways, I don't know why Chinese manufacturers do this... they clear coat every chrome part they could! My SE fork was like that, it drove me nuts. The new Kneesavers are also clear coated so it scratches easily. Check this out:

lol They do ride nice though..the bike that is. Nah in all seriousness the Haro Monocoque will always be in my top 5 race bikes of all time. 1st time building one and then the trial around the block was a unforgettable experience unlike any other bike at that time..for me at least. Nimble, light, exotic, and fast. They don't get enough love nowadays imo. Glad I held on to mine.

The new Kneesavers feel very nice and correct, with just the right sweep like Slam Bars. I don't know about the 2pc bars.
