Redline's been making bikes since way before your parents made you. They were a local company where I grew up in SoCal. The company's been sold since then, but they still turn out good bikes. I only race BMX, don't do freestyle or tricks, so I don't feel qualified to offer advice there. I can tell you that the bike you mentioned is spec'd out nicely, and from a good company.

What, exactly sucks about Redline? The fact that you don't like them, or is there some material reason?

Are you looking for a race bike, or freestyle/trick bike?

I used to ride Redline back in the day, (25 years ago) although I broke alot of Proline frames, I really have nothing bad to say about their current bikes. The component spec on the model you mentioned is great for a stock rig. The bike as a whole would be a good machine for your application.

i had a 2004 complete redline almost like the one your thinking about getting, I really liked the frame, the only things i had problmes with were, i Bent the forks in the same place my friend bent his redline forks, Mine had the Monster cranks and the spindle band and was twisted after about a year, the grips sucked badly, and I hated the tires.

I have a 2018 redline reacon For a couple months now and honestly so far so good.. the only think that preveted me from riding is when I need to repair it due to easy fixes like loose chain, or having to sand my stem so my bars stop slidng other than that it's great
