JensonUSA bicycle mail order sponsors Bikerumor Interbike 2017 coverageHaro took a portal back to the late 1980’s to bring back the Group 1 RS1. It doesn’t have the BMX racing geometry Pistol Pete Loncarevich rode, but its updated 29″ wheels and cruiser fit still maintains the appearance of the original.Haro Group 1 RS1 Cruiser

Remastered Haro Group 1 RS1

It has a full chromoly build that replicates the original’s dropouts, head tube welds and rear triangle. Everything on the bike is custom made to resemble its 30 y/o predecessor – excluding the rear brake, chain and spokes. The front end is modernized with a threadless headset that’s adjusted using a 3/8 socket drive and leaves room for routing a front brake through the steerer tube. Haro Group 1 RS1 Cruiser Tire Haro Group 1 RS1 Cruiser RimHaro Group 1 RS1 Cruiser SeatHaro Group 1 RS1 Cruiser GripsHaro Group 1 RS1 Cruiser Crank

The softgoods also resemble the originals with Kendas Kwick Nine gum walled tires and Haro white grips and a pivotal saddle. Low profile 29 x 2.2″ tires are mounted on rims that have water transferred graphics, and it rolls on sealed cartridge bearing hubs that were again designed to resemble the originals. As an indication of the amount of respect among BMX royalty, the buyer of the very first bike was none other than Craig Turner – the son of GT founder Gary Turner. The retail price is set at $1,000 with quantities limited to “at most 1000 units” worldwide. They’re expecting to launch a chrome accented edition with water transferred graphics in April of 2018. The expected price for chrome edition is $1,300.
