Haro debuted their 2011 bikes near San Diego last week and they have done their homework. Haro continues their tradition of quality bikes with high-end builds, specs and price points for the serious riders, but they've expanded their model lines to include more budget-specific complete bikes. These two budget builds really stuck out at the debut. Haro is providing a way into mountain biking with affordable, but capable bikes, which will help our sport grow and bring in new riders, so with that, check out the 2011 Steel Reserve 1.1 dirt jumper and the Haro Porter Comp slopestyle bikes. Next week, we'll show you some XC bikes from the debut, too.

2011 Haro Steel Reserve 1.1, $480 (yes...for the complete bike!)
