I don't usually dig "retro" but this might have saved me about 2g's and the added heartache of cutting up my '85 fst to make a 26" happen...  cool

Product Information


2014 IS THE YEAR OF SWEET RETRO CRUISERS!

Haro is blowing us away with a full line of retro bikes!

This bike is the retro 26" Haro Freestyler complete bike.

This bike is GREAT for those out there that just like more room to ride! 

Full 4130 cr-mo chrome plated tubing, with Haro Lineage cranks and Lineage stem.

Rear 990 brakes, with front Dia Compe MX1000 brakes. Anodized blue parts on beatiful chrome. This bike is done right!






FRAME: Full 4130 cr-mo Haro Master 1984 Tribute

FORK: Full 4130 cr-mo Haro Master 1984 Tribute 1-1/8" threadless steer tube

GRIPS: ODI Mushroom II

BARS: 4130 Haro Freestyler

STEM: Haro Lineage CNC Top Load

CRANKS: 4130 cr-mo 3-piece 175mm Haro Lineage with 48-spline spindle w/ Mid BB

GEARING: 44/16 with threaded freewheel

TIRES: Kenda Kranium 24" x 2.1"

WHEELS: 36H Haro alloy sealed bearing hubs with alloy double wall rims

SEAT: Lineage pivotal seat

SEAT POST: Alloy pivotal 300mm

PEDALS: Alloy 9/16" platform

 

FRAME SPECS:

Headtube Angle 73°
Seattube Angle 69°
Toptube Length 22"
Chainstay Length 17.83"
BB Height 12.6"
Standover 27"



I'm glad they're doing a 26" !! 
But:

(1) Why did they put 44/16 on it?    44 / 16 X 26 = 71.5 gear inches.  But 44/16 with 20" wheels is 55 gear inches.

(2) The back end is really long.  I realize old school bikes were like this.... But it could be a little more modern.   Like the custom 26" BMX my friend Buddy got made:  http://cruiserrevolution.com/2012/10/26 … 20-666-er/  The innovation in the 26" world seems to be happening in the MTB-DJ/Street scene more than in BMX: http://www.ns-bikes.com/capital,64,pl.htm

You're not the first person to say , let alone think this . I'm a fan of a 26" bike ever since I got my 2012 GT Performer 26 , which isn't nearly as rad as this 26" Master is . cool

Re: 2014 Haro Master 26

IF True Torch is behind the frame building, it will be a super nice ride and very light.  It looks very much like the same frame/geometry of the limited (4) frame run of the True Torch Torker that I have with the exception of the threadless headset and the downtube gusset.

These are great points . I'm surprised they didn't go for 39/16 or something similar . My GT came with the shittiest gearing ever , 36/18 . I see the hub is obviously threaded for a Freewheel , but is it a flip-flop hub like my GT Mohawk on my 26" ? I went down to 36/16 and it's not great but manageable , riding it at Ray's . I plan on going 40/16 on it this Spring .

The back-end of my GT is fairly long at 16.5" . I saw the Haro is like 17.8" , that's pretty long . Most DJ's I see have fairly short rear-ends . I'm not sure why Haro decided to go this route ?

Doubtful and highly unlikely. This will be made in Taiwan or China ect.

Re: 2014 Haro Master 26

It looks like the geo is staying true to the original 20" bikes just scaled up to a 24"/26" version which I think is rad. 
If they shortened the back end and modernized the geo it would start to look kinda strange and no longer be a faithful classic.    I think they got just the right balance of the old school freestyler looks and new technology  i.e.: brake bosses thread less fork etc..  Only thing I'd possibly switch out is the seat..  cool

Re: 2014 Haro Master 26

Not yet but I've noticed the frame sets are starting to come down in price.  I'm holding out.  Would be rad to get a chrome frame set and run some Araya's, a coaster brake inverted stem and some dope old school cruiser bars. Out of all the retros I think Haro got it right.  My only (very minor) gripe is the built in seat clamp addition.  These freestylers need hinged seat clamps!

I agree with you that the Master had a roomy-rear triangle look. There's no way you could do a cherrypicker on a modern 26" DJ-mtb, which often have less than an inch of gap between the tire and the seat tube. 

But, still, I'd say it's more an issue of going off of other early 1980's 26" BMX's, rather than "scaling up" a 20". 

If they were scaling up a 20", then they would/could have had a bottom bracket with 1.75" rise above axle level, the way Sunday did.   This would have meant also having taller handlebars, which would look more like a 20".  And actually, a tall bottom bracket would have helped counter-act the long back end in terms of pulling up. 

Compare it to something like an SE OM Flyer.

Probably trying to keep with the "old school" vibe which 44/16  is all about.

I think an old school "vibe" could have been era-correct 26" gearing.  40/18 and 39/18 were common on 70's/80's 26" BMX's.

The 2012 Mongoose KOS had 40/18 X 26" = 57.77 gear inches.  The classic 44/16 X 20" wheels is 55 gear inches.   Even 42/18 X 26 = 60.6 gear inches would have worked.  cool
