Considering each of these for dirt riding and cross racing. Any thoughts as to pluses and minuses for either?

...I haven't ridden one yet. But I did like the Conquest for the fairly short demo I had, (the Yellow & Black one, natch!).

Didn't get to pace it through the doit, but just on the road. Good, tight-feeling CXer on paved at least, but IMO the parts group ain't that great for the price ($899. at the LBS). Guess with this rig you're paying mainly for the frame.(?)

That's OK tho' - you can always upgrade the parts a bit at a time as they wear out, but how you gonna fix up a crappy frame? ;)

Overall, my impression of the Redline Conquest was favorable. Good luck in your hunt!
