Date Reviewed: January 8, 2011

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.

Bottom Line:   
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.

Weaknesses:    heavy, brake clamp location, chain rusts fast, handle bars at bad angle back or close.

Bottom Line:   
good product high price, i put about $300 into this bike plus the $400 i payed for it, it was worth it because i took off about 3 pounds in the end and its great for cement or wood parks.

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 :(

Bottom Line:   
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 :(

Date Reviewed: June 16, 2007

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!

Bottom Line:   
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.

Bottom Line:   
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.

Date Reviewed: February 13, 2004

Strengths:    Durabale and heavy, the single X is one of the best Dirt Jumping bikes available at its relativly-low price point. It hasn't broken yet, and looks awesome.

Weaknesses:    It is very heavy and can slow you down at times. Although a jumping bike, it may not deliver as much as the Supa X if you are willing to shell out a couple more dollars.

Bottom Line:   
The bike is very durable and has lasted me through every crash. It will not break most likely. The only problem I potentialy see is that it can be a little hard for begginers.

Date Reviewed: July 13, 2003

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

Bottom Line:   
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...

Strengths:    Very strong and durable very good jumping bike.

Weaknesses:    I didnt find any weaknesses

Bottom Line:   
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?
