It can be argued that Dave Mirra was the greatest freestyler of all time, however,it’s undeniable that Dave did more for BMX’s mainstream exposure than any other rider in the sport’s history. As a way to honor Dave’s legacy, we’ve teamed up with Mirraco Corporation to create a bike that pays tribute to one of the many models he rode during his career with Haro. In keeping with both companies’ focus on giving back to the sport, a portion of the revenue generated will be donated to DaveMirra.com to support organizations that promote youth cycling.
If Dave’s candy red tribute model looks familiar, it’ because it graced the coverof Sony’s Playstation

You've lived in San Diego for a few years now, how is that treating you? Mike: It's a dream come true. California is a truly amazing place, and an absolute Mecca for bmx and pretty much everything. Next level food. Nice to stay warm all year too and be able to work with all the best media dudes daily. I really enjoy living there.
Still you manage to organise events back in Canada. What's the main reason you're doing that? Mike: I started an event called Canadian BMX Day a few years back, and the main purpose for our event is to give the local Toronto scene an amazing opportunity to win some prizes and have the most fun day

There are no two ways about it: Dave Mirra was the spark that revitalized Haro in the mid 1990s. Gone were the days of Bob Haro and Ron Wilkerson behind the brand's direction -- it was now Dave Mirra and Ryan Nyquist designing complete bikes that were affordable, high quality and available worldwide to a new legion of BMX fans. A few years later, the X Games hit, and suddenly, Dave Mirra's signature Haro was on every TV screen of an ESPN subscriber, and demand for his signature bikes and components sky rocketed. Mirra remained an esteemed member of the Haro team through the end of 2006, and then started his own brand, Mirraco, for the remainder of his BMX career. But the majority of Mirra's accomplishments at the top of the sport were done on a signature Haro, and it's where most of us remember him best.

At an MSRP of $979.99 the Dennis Enarson complete bike isn't quite the entry level BMX bike. But Dennis Enarson isn't the entry level rider either. The San Diegan could build this bike up out of the box and do all the tricks he can do today. Yes, it's made for the serious BMX-er out there who thinks Dennis is a great guy. The bike weighes in at 23.34 lbs so it's not the leightest bike out there, but it will hold up to many burly tricks. If you've ever seen Dennis ride, you know what I mean. Top tube length options are limited to 21" and it comes in dark olive (or black if you are lucky enough to track one down internationally). Check the spec list and the photos and hop on a bike that the Park rider of the year rides.
