Haro Bikes is pleased to announce the launch of the latest installment in their history series – Haro Bikes – The Rise of BMX Freestyle – Volume 2, written by author Dom Phipps taking place at House of Vans London on Saturday 13th December.
“Haro Bikes – The Rise of BMX Freestyle – Volume 2, is a 176 page book written and researched by author Dom Phipps. “Rise 2” rejoins the Haro story in early 1987, shortly after Bob Haro had negotiated the sale of the company to the mighty West Coast Cycle distribution empire. During that negotiation, a stipulation agreed on by all parties, would be Bob Haro and Haro Vice President Jim Ford’s commitment to lead the company into an exciting new era. Both Haro and Ford would agree, and the future looked brighter than ever.
In the more familiar BMX freestyle world, Haro continued to recruit the most exciting “breakthrough” vert and flatland riders in the world. With a dedicated presence in Europe, and a larger, more evolved team in the United States, Haro would continue to dominate both the freestyle market, and the International contest scene.
The book contains unique personal insights and imagery from Haro’s freestyle, Racing, Mountain Bike and Skate team of the era. Personal recollection and imagery from Rick Moliterno, Mat Hoffman, Dennis McCoy, Eben Krackau, Mike King, Jim Gray, Lee Reynolds, Ron Wilkerson, Brian Blyther, Tara Llanes and many more, help to bring this magical story to life.
The book will be available to purchase at the launch venue as either a box set (Volume 1 & 2), or singularly.
Alongside the launch of the book will be the first look at the full range of 2015 BMX Freestyle product from Haro, with Skatepark session at the House of Vans from BMX legends Dennis “DMC” McCoy, Simon Tabron and the Haro UK Team: Jack Clark, Vincent Mayne, Dean Cueson & Angus Gough
The London launch will be held at The House of Vans, in Lambeth, London. The doors will open at 6pm and run until 10pm.”
