Strengths: Beefy construction, solid, great for upgrading because it's already set up for a 3 piece crank 14 MM axles, threadless headset...exc.
Weaknesses: little heavy, Haven't changed a tire yet but I suspect the rims are single wall as they do flex a bit when you're hard on them but I plan to upgrade them later.
Great bike to ride everyday and take to the parks on the weekends. I have thrashed mine hard (ride it like I stole it)and it just smiles and keeps thrashing. Haven't broken it yet. Redline knows what they are doing and keep getting better.
Similar Products Used: i've had one other old redline but this one is the best

Strengths: Nice looking and very strong although the forks seem to bend or wait mabey thats just my inability to ride :)Good tyres they last for ages and are really grippy although Maxxis Miracles are better for riding park :)
Weaknesses: Forks like i said and the crank arms seem to be a bit week. Back arm where the rear tyre bolts on seems to bend and im forever straighting it out from grinding :(
Great bike. Perfect for 1st bike buyer IF they have money to replace the forks otherwise fantastic. Dont be a fool and pay as much as i did for it there so much cheaper now :) DO not buy if a little on the week side as they are heavy and hard to get air on untill you are use to it. This can be a problem for new BMXer's as they lose confidence and quit :(
Favorite Trail: What ever i can untill our park has been finished being built

Strengths: It took anything I could manage to dish out which quite a bit. really strong frame awesome bars (a little wide though)the crank and drive system is awesome too.
Weaknesses: As most have said it's a little heavy and if you like taking big drops I recommend buying a chromoly fork or a thicker steel fork and a good wheelset and your good to go!
this is a great bike I recommend it for anyone with a medium budget but wants a good strong bike to take to the local trails. Buy it if you like catching huge air but want a bike to take abuse but if you plan on just riding to a friends house go to walmart im sure they have something for ya.

Strengths: Good heavy frame, ok fork.
Weaknesses: week seat and crapy grips. Always buying new rims.
The bottom line is this bike is good. I bought it second hand and it still held up after every jump. I'm still bit of a beginner but the bike is good for me. I'd sugest this bike for a beginner that is still testing the ropes, because you can wipe it good and still have a working bike.
Bike Setup: Just as sold. Only modification is on the grips, and I fixed the chain and pulled off the gaurd.

Strengths: Nice looking,sturdy,hasn't really broken on me yet,
Weaknesses: The brakes are a tad on the weak side once they are broken in and used frequently
Marvelous bike. Absolutely marvelous. A little heavy, which is good in a way because if you can jam on a heavy bike, lighter bikes are no problem. Perfect for riders who are big, (I'm 6 foot 180 lbs.,but it could probably stand up to even the biggest rider), but don't have the budget to get titanium components. If you have the money, you might want to go for the Redline Supa X, which is more money, but a better bike...
Bike Setup: All stock, except I have a pair of Primo pegs on the right side

Strengths: Very strong and durable very good jumping bike.
Weaknesses: I didnt find any weaknesses
This bike is best for a teenager because its a little heavy to jump for a little kid. Unless they are just ridng and not jumping. i would recomend buying this bike if i were you. its strong durable not heavy and cool looking and just an all around good bike.
There have been a few posts lately which state that when 1x11 becomes prevalent, that single pivots will again be the way to go. Why is this?
I realize that some suspension designs work better with certain chainrings, but what confuses me i guess is the fact that a low gear, whether achieved w ... Read More »
Holy moly are these hard to come by. I have a XTR M985 crankset I am converting to 1 x 10. I need a single 88 BCD chain ring for this and have not been able to find any thing other then homebrew. Any leads on where else to get a ring ? I do not want to wait a month + for a chain ring.Read More »
I have a 2009 Fuji Tahoe Comp that I'm converting to a commuter. I've already put on street tires and ordered a Voodoo rigid front fork that I will be installing as soon as it arrives. My commute is 14.5 miles one way with some pretty good hills. I would say at least a third of it has climbs and ... Read More »
