I was looking for a good CX / Utility bike and the Redline seems like a good deal. What does anyone think that has ridden the bike?

I just built up my new Conquest frame and I love it so far. I have taken it off road a couple of times. It handles really well, the welds are clean, and it is sooooooo much lighter than my Surly. I do still love my Surly, though.

It's got kind of a short top tube, so my seat sometimes smacks my helmet when shouldering. Otherwise, not a single complaint.

Incidentally, the exact same brake set up (Shimano 600 STI levers w/XT cantis) works 1000% better on this frame than on the Surly. Could it be the stiffness of the aluminum?

Anyway, so far I think the frame is a great value and Tim Rutledge at Redline/SBS is super cool about responding to e-mail. He seems like a really cool person.

Thanks for taking the time to make a comment on the bike that I am now going to get.
