I saw your post elsewhere about starting to ride again....Haro is taking preorders for the team master lineage frames if you want some OS flava...21"tt as well.

How would I find the pre-order? I didn’t see it on the Haro site.

Every little bit helps! Taller and wider bars also help, to a point. I don’t really know many rolling tricks but I do like to ride ramps, so feeling comfortable means being safe...

Check your favorite online shops. Sponsors of this site like planet bmx.
Albes, cheap goods, flatland fuel are others. I have bought my sports through cheap goods. The 21" master is limited to 100 so you may need to check more than one place.

Thanks OPC and FU. 

I'm 5'9" and have always ridden 20.5" TT, but am feeling cramped lately, probably because I've spent quite some time on mountain bikes these past few years...

All I really want to do is some old school tricks: front wheel hops, fire hydrants, G-turns, tailwhips (on the ground, mind you) but don't want to feel like I'm throwing a boat around.

Thoughts?  Give a 21" TT a try?

Your insights guys are appreciated!

I was hoping the airmaster was going to be 21, but JB said he was finally making the "air" sport the longer/vert bike only for this go round. mad
lol Honestly, im no help with flatland. But Im around the same size and for charging parks and trails, I doubt .5 inches matters unless yer ultra dialed. Im a lil picky about bars and their height though.

I currently only have my old school bikes, mostly Redlines for the tall head tube and 20.5 TT’s. I am really excited to try a new school frame. The NS’s super short rear end and steeper seat tube drastically change the dimension from BB to grip position. So even at the same TT length, the NS will have more space between my feet and hands.

If you’re already riding a NS frame you may not feel much difference in 1/2”, but I’d think you would feel 1”.

Thanks for the pointer. I did look into it, but in the end the Bastille checks all the right boxes. It will get the Lineage fork with folding pegs though, so still a touch of old school.

Re: Anyone Picking Up New Bikes Coming Out By Haro?!

I'll just throw this out here to avoid starting a new thread...

The Bastille frame has a 13.25" chainstay - will I feel much difference between 160/165mm cranks? The important details = size 14 feet, short (~50mm) rear pegs, all-around rider used for '80's flat and local skate parks.


EDIT: I went with 160mm. I’m used to short cranks on Trials bikes, so there is literally no downside.

I have been struggling to feel comfortable on a new school bike myself. When I was riding back in the 80’s I was 5’5”. Now at close to 6’ those old bikes of mine feel way smaller. I started buying and selling bikes to figure it out and finally came to a point of understanding with the new bikes. I found that a 9.5” bar was the key. I want a bike that can be used for park and old school flatland. I’m currently riding a 21” tt and love everything so far. It feels like my 22” bike with the room and stability. I’m sure that if I get my old skills back that I might shorten the length a bit for tailwhip hops, but I might just be fine staying on the 21 too. I’ll know more when I progress to that point.

Awesome riding! love the colors i know this is the flatland frame but i wish they would do the normal master frame in 21 they already done a 20.5 complete this color so when the new frame comes out again it should 21 to be a bit different. sad

This is great input, thanks for posting.  I'm in the same boat: feeling my way into finding what makes sense for the tricks and riding I want to do.  At 5'9", a 20.5" TT feels a bit cramped, I guess, but that might be because as a kid I rode a Redline (which felt roomier than most OS bikes).  Would never have thought about 9.5" bars, though - just easier on the back, I assume?  Thx again for sharing.  Appreciated!

I am glad to try and help. I found that everyone had thoughts on what I should try but really wasn’t going through my type of struggle. I stopped riding by the early/mid 90’s and just started back up again about 2 years ago. I can still ride my old bikes but they feel cramped for most anything that I would use them for. I decided to try and get the old feel back with a newer and updated bike. I tried a bunch of different sizes and brands to really only figure out that I needed a size that my legs weren’t smacking the bars all the time. I got frustrated and almost quit because I didn’t get much more of a feel then that. I accidentally came upon a 22” Twin Peaks for sale and bought it to try. I immediately felt more comfortable on it. So I started comparing the sizes and how to make my 20” more similar. I never thought of bars for height, but more for backsweep. Best discovery I made was the 9.5” size of the Lineage or No Wear bars. It took me almost 2 years but I finally got it now. I could probably be anywhere from a 20.5 to 21 tt and be okay now. I opted for the 21 right now because I need to get the skills and balance back and then move forward. We spend a lot of time at Ray’s Bike Park and it’s definitely more stable for all those jumps.

Re: Anyone Picking Up New Bikes Coming Out By Haro?!

I rode Redlines BITD too, but old school puts the BB too far forward. I just got a set of Merritt Slaughter 9.25" bars and hope I'll feel somewhat comfortable on 21" frame.

Re: Anyone Picking Up New Bikes Coming Out By Haro?!

I would snag one of the newer Master Team reissues if I could find one, but I want the 87 era vintage.  I think that was the peak of Haro design and styling.

I remember when a kid showed up to school with the first year of bashguard master - and we all thought it was the ugliest thing to ever hit BMX.


What would you little maniacs like to do first?

Hey OPC, cool - another vintage Redline Man.  Did you find Redlines to be roomier than most frames BITD? 

And what would having the BB further forward translate into handling / the bike's riding characteristics?  Super interesting - looking to learn something here, because I never felt so comfortable than when on my OS Redline.

Re: Anyone Picking Up New Bikes Coming Out By Haro?!

My 2016 lineage has been my main rider since I built it. The geometry is great and it is very comfortable. I am 5’9” and run a 20.75” and it feels great. Plenty of room. I put probably at least 100 miles on it this year riding with my son.
