2002 USA Made Nyquist Backtrail X Pro
As you’ll come to find out, there’s not much information on the 2002 USA Made Nyquist Backtrail X Pro just like the 2003 USA made Dave Mirra Pro S351. However, I do consider myself to be very lucky to have one of these bad boys in my collection along with three others. But this isn’t just any frame this is the one Ryan Nyquist rode in the 2001 X-Games. (Although Nyquist rode it in 2001 this frame was available to the public 2002.) Nevertheless, when I seen it I knew I had to buy, but the only issue was the price. Moreover, two years later me and the seller were able to work something out and I jumped on it. Even more awesome it came signed with papers of authentication, a signed Nyquist personal 2002 jersey, and a couple of extra goodies; It was worth every penny. I’ve only seen three other 2002 USA Made Nyquist Backtrail X Pro’s in wild and each one is something special.
What’s the difference?
For 2002 Haro released one version of the USA made Nyquist Backtrail X Pro which came in two colors and can be purchased as a frame only. Of course you can buy the complete bike as well the only difference between them are the color. One notably difference between the USA made frame and a Taiwan complete bike are the the dropouts. The USA made frame has laser cut dropouts on the other hand, the Taiwan complete doesn’t.
2002 USA Made Nyquist Backtrail X Pro?
So how do you know you have, or found, a 2002 USA Made Nyquist Backtrail X Pro? Firstly, and most importantly, the laser cut dropouts is a dead giveaway plus we’re going to be looking for the serial number. It’s not on the bottom bracket on the USA models it’s on the right dropout and starts with H0XXXX. Just to clarify, that should be enough to stamp it as a USA frame. But if you want to take it a couple steps further make sure there’s no weeping holes in the tubes.
In addition, you can look for a Haro aluminum badge keep in mind that they can fall of throughout the years (2000 MP and BP USA made frame didn’t have them.) In addition, There are no 4130 CRMO stampings on the dropouts, or serial number on the bottom bracket. Furthermore, the right dropout has a serial number that looks like this: H01115. Another hint is the 99/2000 – 2002 frame have no weeping holes in the tubes. I’ll do a write up on all the USA made frame indicators a bit later.
The Wrap Up
In conclusion, just remember there are no Haro stamps anywhere on the frame to let you know what it is. In others words, there are no 4130 CRMO stampings on the dropouts, or serial number on the bottom bracket. I’ll do a in depth write up on all the USA made frame indicators a bit later.
There’s only one set of stickers for these frames USA made frames.
