25.2 pounds, 13.75 CS, 21 TT and 74.5 HT

Looks like a fun bike

Normally I change parts around but I really don't see anything I would change.  Price point is incredibly reasonable too.  All business kind of bike.  cool

I would change the pedals at least.

Not plastic pedals that's for sure.Most likely Odyssey JC or Animal Hamilton pedals

Yeah, I saw the bike on SugarCayne. I ride Haro and will always be a fan but I'm not feeling this bike. I raced an RS2 in the late '80's. Group 1's are race bikes not trail bikes. roll

If you have FB, Haro just posted a rider riding one in a skate park blasting some huge air.  The group one was a pretty cool race bike bitd, I know.  The geo on this one is 74.5 and a little longer CS than their other bikes and a long TT... so I figured that why its for trails.  Haro already has a bunch of race bikes and I guess the only thing Group one is the paint.  I still dig it.  It's like a painted up Haro Lineage from like 2016...

My only issue with this bike is the lack of chrome parts.

Re: 2019 Haro Group 1 RS1 Trails bike....Who's getting one?

YEah, the RS 1 is the old "RACE" model, I get that. Still, BITD we took our race bikes to the trails. M friend on his RS 1, another on his GT Pro Series and I on my Robinson. Those frames were later changed to a Limo, Mad Dog and a Holmes but they were the bikes we raced. My only issue with this is Haro was not making cranks like that in '78.

I was going to say something simular yesterday...we had trails in the woods near the bmx track and between motos guys from all over would ride them.  I remember my friends brother had one out there all the time.  Always perfectly clean and he always rode with bright white vans

I know you know this but the 1978 is just the series name.  Haro started in 78, i think

I wonder is 13.75 is the center of the dropout or is it 13.5-14?

Could you post the video of the pro riding one on FB?  Haro Bmx posted it yesterday.

I think it's pretty awesome. I don't need it but if I was buying a retro bike this week, I'd choose the Group 1.


ride your bike until it breaks.

I don't go on FB but I'm guessing it's the same video they posted on instagram as well:
